Paramount Gains Rights to Sonic the Hedgehog Movie

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount Pictures has secured the film rights to the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie adaptation.

The decision is understandable: the movie's production sounds like a gamble, as it does not devote itself fully to animation, which may pose problems; instead, it will work with both CGI and live actors.

First released in 1991, the Sonic the Hedgehog game series was responsible for putting Sega on the map. To date, the franchise has sold more than 360 million copies of its numerous games across different gaming platforms.

The plan is to make a film that blends live-action shots with computer-generated imagery to bring Sonic and his friends to the real world, while maintaining their digital appearance. Sega then tied up with Sony Pictures Entertainment in 2014 for the film development in its bid to expand its entertainment brand. Looking to capitalize on Sonic's global fanbase, Paramount Pictures has secured the film rights to produce a Sonic the Hedgehog movie.
