Sony Pictures and producer Neal Moritz will be bringing the popular Sega Genesis game ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ to the big screen. Working alongside Japanese animation studio Marza Animation Planet, the movie will be a live action/animation hybrid.
Upright Citizens Brigade comedy alums Evan Susser and Van Robichaux are writing the screenplay, and the project will be overseen by Hannah Minghella and Andrea Giannetti.
Minghella released a statement saying, “There are limitless stories to tell with a character like Sonic the Hedgehog, and a built-in international fanbase. Along with our wonderful creative partners at Marza, we’re looking to capture everything that generations of fans know and love about Sonic while also growing his audience wider than ever before.”
