Sonic the Hedgehog movie now at Paramount


Pray they too never make it

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is moving studios. Deadpool director Tim Miller was going to produce with his pal Jeff Fowler directing and Sony had the rights to make it, but they put the project on hold and then just entirely dropped it. Paramount, acting like a hungry dog scooping up their owner's dropped scraps, scooped it up.

Want to know why Sony dropped this? Because making a serious Sonic movie is a dumb, nearly impossible idea that should not be done. Obviously a brand name like Sonic looks promising to any studio, especially now that the blue speedster has had a good game that everyone loves, but there are some properties that do not need adaptation. This is especially true considering the fact that this movie is reportedly going to be part live-action and part CGI. It's just a bad idea all around. Sonic works as a video game character, and as a cartoon sometimes; he does not work as a giant, anthropomorphic CGI movie character. 

Who is clamoring for this? I don't know a single Sonic fan who has been demanding that a Sonic movie be made. Do you?
