Ben Schwartz has been tapped to voice Sonic The Hedgehog.
The upcoming Paramount Pictures flick will blend live-action and CGI to bring SEGA's iconic Blue Blur to the big screen for the first time since he sped onto the video game market in 1991.
James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, and Jim Carrey will also star.
Jeff Fowler will direct, while Neal H. Moritz is producing.
Deadpool director Tim Miller will executive produce with Toby Ascher.
Schwartz is no stranger to voicing classic characters. He’s currently Dewey Duck on Disney Channel’s reboot of Duck Tales, and will also lend his pipes to the role of Leonardo in Nickelodeon’s Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Since being launched back in 1991 to the SEGA Genesis gaming console, Sonic The Hedgehog has sold more than 360 million copies to date, including both packaged and digital games on home consoles, tablets, and mobile.
Paramount Pictures has set the flick for release on November 15th, 2019.
