Paramount Teams Up With DEADPOOL Director For SONIC THE HEDGEHOG Live-Action/CGI Movie

That live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie is still in the works and it now has a producer in the form of Deadpool director Tim Miller. Hit the jump for everything we know so far about this adaptation.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Paramount Pictures has secured the rights to the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie which will be a hybrid of CGI characters and live-action. However, the most exciting reveal is the fact that Deadpool director Tim Miller is now attached to produce the movie, a sign perhaps that we can expect the same sort of offbeat tone as his R-Rated Marvel adaptation.

The video game movie also has a director in the form of Jeff Fowler and the VFX whiz will make his directorial debut here. "Jeff is an incredible director with strong story instincts," Miller said in a statement addressing the filmmaker's hiring. "The world of Sonic presents the perfect opportunity for him to leverage his experience in animation to bring
new dimension to this iconic character."
 
Sonic made an appearance in Wreck-it-Ralph but this movie is obviously being used as a way to bring the iconic video game character back to the big screen in a major way. Sonic the Hedgehog's script was written by Patrick Casey and Josh Miller and while it still doesn't have a release date, it looks like work will begin shortly. Are you guys excited for the movie? Let us know your thoughts down below.
