Back in 2014, SEGA announced a CGI/live-action hybrid film adaption of Sonic the Hedgehog. The project was silent for a long time, but earlier this year we learned that it’s slated to release in 2018, and today it landed a producer. Just a few days after stepping down as the director of Deadpool 2 (due to creative disagreements with Ryan Reynolds), Tim Miller has signed on to be the executive producer of the Sonic movie.
Miller will work on the film along with longtime collaborator Jeff Fowler, who will serve as director. Neal H. Moritz, producer of the Fast and Furious franchise, will be producing the film. Patrick Casey and Josh Miller, creators of Golan the Insatiable, are writing the script, and it’s said to be a family film.
