The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is racing to the big screen. 

Accorrding to The Hollywood Reporter, Deadpool director Tim Miller and producer Neal H. Moritz will bring the beloved video game character to the big screen after Paramount nabbed the movie rights to the popular SEGA video game franchise. 

Neal H. Moritz, whose Original Film banner recently signed an upcoming first look deal with Paramount, will produce the project, which is coming to the studio after Sony Entertainment put it into turnaround. 

Much of the development team from Sony will make the switch too: In addition to Moritz, Deadpool director Tim Miller is executive producing, while his long time Blur Studio collaborator Jeff Fowler will make his feature directorial debut on the film. 

Sonic features the lightning-fast blue hedgehog and his friends Tails and Knuckles as they collect rings and dodge the mechanical monstrosities of the evil Dr Eggman or Robotnik depending on where in the world you first played the Sonic game series which began in 1991. 

Paramount plans on making a movie that will blend live action and CGI animation as it brings Sonic to the big screen for the first time.
