Paramount Pictures has nabbed the movie rights to Sonic the Hedgehog, which will be based off the hugely popular SEGA franchise of the same name.
Neal H. Moritz will produce the project, which recently raced over to Paramount after Sony passed on the film. Most of the original team still remains in place including executive producer Tim Miller and his longtime Blur Studio collaborator Jeff Fowler, who will direct.
The first Sonic The Hedgehog game was released by SEGA in 1991, with the titular hero becoming one of the world's biggest gaming icons. More than 360-Million Sonic The Hedgehog gaming titles have sold over the past 26 years.
Paramount plans on making a movie that will blend live action and CGI animation as it brings Sonic to the big screen for the first time.
