Because video game movies are becoming the new superhero movies, we’re getting a Sonic the Hedgehog film. And who better to develop it than Tim Miller, who recently has some unexpected time on his hands since quitting the Deadpool sequel. He won’t be directing, though — it’ll be Jeff Fowler, his Blur Studios colleague, who will be making his directorial debut with this film
Sonic the Hedgehog
Back in 2014, Sony announced plans to bring Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog to the big screen with a CGI / live-action hybrid adventure, and then…things got quiet. And they stayed quiet. Until now. Sega is threatening us with an actual, honest-to-goodness release date for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, which will allegedly roll into theaters in 2018.
'Sonic the Hedgehog,' the popular Sega video game protagonist, is going to be making the leap (perhaps with the help of the A button) to the big screen as Sony and Original Film are teaming with Sega to turn the character into a franchise mainstay, with films due out every year.
