SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2 Star Jim Carrey Gifted A New Car To A Member Of The Sequel's Crew
Jim Carrey is currently busing shooting Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and it's now been revealed that the actor ended up gifting a brand new car to one of the sequel's crew members. Find more details here...
Legendary actor Jim Carrey is currently in Vancouver, Canada, hard at work shooting his role as the villainous Dr. Robotnik in Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
As you might expect, shooting a blockbuster movie in the midst of a pandemic is no easy feat, and the appreciative actor decided to thank the crew for their hard work by holding a raffle. The grand prize was a Chevy Blazer RS that's worth around $40,000, and the winner - who was picked on Friday morning - is a grip on the movie.
This is a cool move on Carrey's part, and one that was no doubt appreciated by everyone putting themselves at risk to get the sequel finished in time for its theatrical release in April 2022.
Little is known about Sonic the Hedgehog 2, but the actor is expected to serve as the movie's lead villain following his transformation into the evil Robotnik from the SEGA video games. Set photos have also confirmed that Knuckles will be making his live-action debut alongside Tails (who was introduced in the first movie's post-credits scene).
James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, and Tika Sumpter are all returning, while Jeff Fowler will be directing based a screenplay by Pat Casey and Josh Miller.
