Sonic's ready for his close-up

It seems that the upcoming live action/CGI Hollywood Sonic movie has been toiling around in development hell for quite some time, but every now and then it makes a little bit of progress forward. Though it doesn’t sound like it’s going to actually be happening anytime soon—definitely not in time for that ‘2018’ release date—fans will no doubt be pleased to hear that it hasn’t been completely canned yet.

Sony had evidently put the movie into turnaround, so Paramount has now acquired the rights and is moving forward with the project. The same production staff will be working on it—including the director of Deadpool—and it seems that the movie will still be working towards the same goal of live action/CGI mix, but the rest of it is still up in the air. Much unlike the Blue Blur, this one is moving pretty slow, but sooner or later, it will hit theaters.

What do you think? Is this movie ever going to be released? How do you think it’s going to pan out? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
