The ‘Sonic The Hedgehog’ Movie is Coming for Your Childhood

Because nothing is sacred and everything from your childhood must be constantly churned up and regurgitated in slightly shittier form, there is going to be a Sonic The Hedgehog movie.

It was announced today that Sony will take the speedy blue guy, who single-handedly caused the ADHD epidemic of the 1990s, to the big screen, in hybrid live action-CGI form.

The Wrap report that film will be penned by Evan Susser and Van Robichaux of the Upright Citizens Brigade comedy troupe, a sign that Sony might be shooting for Lego Movie-like levels of irony with this.

UCB has spawned talents like Amy Poehler and Aziz Ansari, although Susser and Robichaux’s highest-profile IMDB credit is something called Seth Rogen = Worst Person In The World, so only time will tell if the can deliver the goods.

Sonic has sold more than 140 million games over the course of his lifetime, although arguably, he’s never been the same since Nintendo kicked Sega‘s ass in the console wars.

Reportedly, the film will aim to capture Sonic’s “irreverent” tone. If successful, it will inspire an all new generation of bratty kids to nag their parents for Sonic-related merchandise, thus keeping the brand alive.

There’s no release date scheduled as yet, but something tells me you’ll be hearing more about it.
