James Marsden Will Star In The Sonic The Hedgehog Movie

Just imagine that's Sonic instead.

James Marsden (Westworld, X-Men) will be the star of the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog film, Variety reports.

The movie, due out in November 2019, will be a mix of live-action and CG, and is also amazingly the first time the 27 year-old Sega character has appeared on the big screen.

Marsden has past experience with this kind of thing, having starred in Hop a few years back.

Sonic is being directed by Jeff Fowler, who made the 2005 animated short Gopher Broke.

    I think I have more chance of winning the lotto that I don't play than a Sonic the Hedgehog movie actually being good. I'd love to be wrong about this but when was the last time Sega made a good Sonic Game, let alone Sonic had a good TV Show/Movie. I'm picturing a two hour episode of Sonic Boom.

    While their have been exceptions to the rule, Game movies tend to be crap, it's like people who make movies have no idea what people who play the games want in a movie. It's almost as if they think video games never evolved to have lore, characters and plots. Those are the first three things changed in a Video Game Movie.

      I feel like a Sonic movie has way more chance of being good than a Sonic game.

    ...and is also amazingly the first time the 27 year-old Sega character has appeared on the big screen.

    Except for Wreck-It Ralph!

      I believe sonic appeared in Ready Player One. So, mixed with live action... Will this be another Smurfs or Alvin? No thank you for me or my kids.
