That live action / hybrid animation Sonic the Hedghog movie is happening whether you like it or not. Now, we’ve learned (via Hollywood Reporter) a certain director has signed onto the project, making things even more interesting.
Deadpool director Tim Miller has signed onto the Sony Pictures-headed project, alongside his longtime Blur Studio collaborator Jeff Fowler. This will be the first time Fowler is in the director’s chair.
Both creators are working in collaboration with Neal H. Moritz (Fast and Furious franchise), who is acting as producer on the adaptation, with Miller as the executive producer. Patrick Casey and Josh Miller (creators of Golan the Insatiable) are writing the script.
The movie is planned as a hybrid live-action/CG animation family film, so unfortunately there won’t be the level of expletives and innuendo seen in the excellent Deadpool film adaptation.
