    As reported earlier, Sega has been working on a 'live-action and animation hybrid' movie featuring the Blue Blur. In an exclusive article by The Hollywood Reporter, it has been revealed that Deadpool director Tim Miller will act as the executive producer while Jeff Fowler (director and co-founder of trailer specialists Blur Studio) will make his debut as director for the movie. Joining them is Neal H. Moritz (from the Fast and Furious franchise), who is producing the adaptation, while the script writing will be handled by Patrick Casey and Josh Miller, who created Golan the Insatiable.

    Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Tim Miller added:“Jeff is an incredible director with strong story instincts. The world of Sonic presents the perfect opportunity for him to leverage his experience in animation to bring new dimension to this iconic character.”

    So there we have it! Some big shots working on the world's most famous hedgehog 'live-action and animation hybrid' movie. Will they be able to finally break the curse of mediocre video game movie adaptation?

    Cool to hear that Tim Miller joins the fray. He did a good job with Deadpool.

    I'd like it if the live action component of this film consisted of Sonic being played by an actual hedgehog.

    as long as the movie is nothing like deadpool... good.
    since it's the directory himself, hopefully he will be able to NOT do exactly what he normally would.
    since deadpool was just too much edge.

    Ugh... Videogame movies... Hell, they almost always suck.
    I suppose they are going to give him the ultra-edgy personality from the Sonic Twitter (kind of akin to Deadpool movie humor), but meeeh.

    If I ever end up watching it, It'll probably be the Rifftrax version.

    Considering the quality of 'live action adaptations' over the years, I'd be surprised if it's so bad it's good, let alone good.

    Not sure how you find the movie 'edgy'. It took itself with hardly any seriousness whatsoever.

    does edge means serious? anyway, what i mean by edge was 'making dark lewd jokes thinking you're a badass'. the character was just too over the top, usually i don't look into movies/media too much and just try to enjoy it but this was like some edgelord 15 year old youtube commentor who uses the word 'dank', as a superhero.

    I've always interpreted the word edgy as being overly dark and cynical because you think it's cool but in reality is just childish. May be wrong, though. Deadpool is mostly dark humor, which I don't think is the same.

    dark humor sure, but just the way it is given (the personality of deadpool) was embarrassing (in my opinion)

    As someone who likes to pick up some of the comics every once in a while, I'd say it's rather accurate. I think it was a pretty good movie. Keep in mind that the budget was only $58 million, and it had an $7 million budget cut from what it should have been, and to be honest I enjoyed it more than movies with four times the budget. I think it would have been more entertaining if it had a bigger budget, so that they could show Deadpool's interactions with some of the more prominent superheroes.

    I've actually always hated the characters of both Deadpool and Sonic. They're both smarmy, sarcastic and smug. I hated Sonic in the video games and the cartoons, and Deadpool in the comic books.

    Kind of rather see him do Shadow the Hedgehog specifically. So much edge.

    There is nothing redeeming about Sonic except the game play of the old titles. The cartoon was generic, and as fun as Adventure 1 and 2 were, the character personifications in that were a major distraction.

    Probably the most unintentionally comic game I've played.

    This is great news. Deadpool's my favourite comedy/superhero film and so I trust them entirely.
