Sony Entertainment Is Bringing Sonic the Hedgehog to the Big Screen

bill-swift - June 13, 2014

The 1993 live-action adaptation of Super Mario Brothers was so utterly terrible that nobody in Hollywood has had the balls to even attempt another adaptation of the world's most popular video game franchise since then.

Hopefully someone will work up the courage to try it again eventually, because Mario and Luigi deserve better. In the meantime, though, we're going to have to settle for the next best thing: Sonic the motherf*cking Hedgehog.

That's right. Sony Pictures has announced that they are developing a hybrid CGI/live-action Sonic picture along with Japan-based Marza Animation Planet. Sony's own Neal Moritz is producing, along with Marza's Takeshi Ito and Mie Onishi, while Upright Citizens Brigade alums Evan Susser and Van Robichaux are penning the script.

Of course, in a way, we've already seen two movies all about Dr. Robitnik, Sonic's nemesis. I mean, Gru from Despicable Me is basically Dr. Robotnik without the mustache, right?

There's no word yet on when we can expect Sonic: The Movie to hit theaters. But I'm going to go out on a limb and say it'll be some time between 2015 and 2025.

Don't quote me on it, though.
