Paramount Pictures’ Sonic the Hedgehog live-action film director, Jeff Fowler, revealed on Twitter that the film release date has been pushed to February 14, 2020. The director said the delay is because staff are “Taking a little more time to make Sonic just right.”
Fowler revealed in the begin of the month that Paramount Pictures will redesign Sonic for their upcoming “Sonic the Hedgehog” live-action hybrid movie adaptation.
Sonic the Hedgehog is directed by Jeff Fowler. The film features Ben Schwartz (Duck Tales, Parks and Recreation) as the voice Sonic, James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, and Jim Carrey. Neal H. Moritz and Tim Miller (Deadpool) will be the film executive producing, along with Toby Ascher. Patrick Casey and Josh Miller will write the film scripts. Dmitri Johnson and Dan Jevons are co-producing the project.
Sonic the Hedgehog was first released by Sega for arcades in 1991. The game has since spawned several animated series and comic book tie-ins.
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG film follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound – human – best friend Tom Wachowski (James Marsden). Sonic and Tom join forces to try and stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination.
