Old news actually but I forgot to post about it. http://www.sonicretro.org/2016/10/people-making-sonic-movie/

It’s been more than two years since it was announced that a live action/CG animation hybrid Sonic movie is being made. However, it wasn’t until today that we got to hear about who is making the film. So now that we know some details, let’s take a look at who the folks making this thing are:

Jeff Fowler from Blur Studio is directing the movie. While it’s not known which in particular were directed by him, he has worked on various CG cutscenes and trailers for video games. He also wrote and directed the short Gopher Broke back in 2004, and wrote the 2006 short A Gentlemen’s Duel. He has also been working on an animated adaptation of David Fincher’s The Goon.

The writers are Patrick Casey and Josh Miller. The duo are probably most well known for creating and writing the majority of Golan the Insatiable. Aside from that they wrote the Sad Slasher shorts, and have written a bunch of not-that-well-received movies including Transylmania, Shotgun Wedding, Dorm Daze, and Dorm Daze 2.

There are also a whole bunch of producers attached to the movie. First off there’s Neal H. Moritz, who is the founder of Original Film and has produced a ton of movies including the Fast and the Furious series and 21 Jump Street. Then there are Takeshi Ito and Mie Onishi from Marza Animation Planet, the studio behind the CG cutscenes for just about every Sega game this past decade as well as the fan favourite short Night of the Werehog. Finally there are Dmitri Johnson and Dan Jevons of DJ2 Entertainment, who are currently producing movies based on Blacklight and Life is Strange.

And finally there are the executive producers. Tim Miller is probably the most noteworthy of all the people working on Sonic, mainly cause he directed Deadpool. He is also the founder of Blur Studio, and thus has worked with Jeff Fowler before. Speaking to Hollywood Reporter, he had this to say about Jeff directing Sonic:

“Jeff is an incredible director with strong story instincts. The world of Sonic presents the perfect opportunity for him to leverage his experience in animation to bring new dimension to this iconic character.”

Finally, Toby Ascher of Original Film is executive producing too, and Andrea Giannetti will oversee the production for Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Also worth pointing out is that Van Robichaux and Evan Susser, who were previously reported to be writing the movie’s screenplay, no longer seem to be involved. Instead they went on to write the screenplay for Fist Fight, which stars Charlie Day and Ice Cube.

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is currently scheduled for release in 2018. As for when the movie will actually release: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yes. Live Action.

This is going ahead and they want Paul Rudd. To play

 Tom, a cop who ends up befriending Sonic before the duo team-up to take down the evil Robotnik. Beyond that, no details about the plot have been revealed at this time.

UPDATE: After speaking to a representative from Paramount Pictures, we've learned that this rumor is not accurate. Paul Rudd is not currently in talks to join Sonic the Hedgehog.

A videogame mascot social club early 2018:

 

Mario: Heya guys, I think everyone has finally forgotten that god awful live action movie about me and Luigi from 93.

Link: Fuck aye, that was a stinker. I don't think it's possible to make a much worse movie even with Uwe Boll involved.

Sonic: Hold my rings...

That Mario movie is a far more interesting and better film than it had any right to be.

 

Seriously, rewatch it. If you divorce it from the source material, it's not bad at all.

 

It's brave as fuck too. Can you imagine a studio now making a dystopian version of a children's video game property?!

It's one of my fondest childhood cinema memories, seeing that with my dad.

Since when was Sonic *furry*?! 

 

I've always naturally assumed that since real hedgehogs have spines, those blue spikes on Sonic are just stylized spines...
