  • Sonic the Hedgehog

The popular Sega video game franchise "Sonic the Hedgehog" will forge ahead with its live-action treatment from Paramount. Neal Moritz is set to produce through his Original Film shingle. Moritz, Miller, and Fowler have stuck with the project since it was first being developed by Sony, which acquired the film rights from SEGA in 2013.

Tom McLean has been writing for years about animation from a secret base in Los Angeles.

When it comes to classic video games, Sonic the Hedgehog really takes the biscuit (or the golden rings). Hopefully, the film won't have the typical fish out of water story that has plagued similar premises and merely has a live-action Eggman taking on CGI Sonic.

Fans of Sonic the Hedgehog have likely been hearing about the prospect of a live action movie adaptation of the franchise for some time now. Hell, even when it comes to games, Sonic's recent outings have ranged from pleasantly surprising (Sonic Mania) to disastrous (Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric).

If you want to grab the film rights to Sonic the Hedgehog, you've got to go fast.

Paramount Pictures picked up the project after Sony Entertainment put the project at the backburner, according to The Hollywood Reporter. However, things might be different for Jeff Fowler and Tim Miller.

The series to date has sole more than 360 million copies across various gaming platforms.

Sonic the Hedgehog has been running around for a while now for a movie to be made.
