    When it comes to classic video games, Sonic the Hedgehog really takes the biscuit (or the golden rings). I mean, really, is there any game better than Sonic? We think not. The game has dominated the video game industry since its creation in 1991 – and Sonic fans were over the moon to find out that Sony Entertainment was planning a big-screen debut for the hedgehog. However, we got our hopes up for nothing, as the long-awaited movie never materialized.

    However, it seems like the movie may be gracing our screens sometime soon, as Paramount Pictures have bought the rights to give our favorite hedgehog a much-needed CGI makeover for an epic movie.

    Sonic the Hedgehog movie in the works

    Although most people (i.e us) are pretty darn excited about this new development, there are some debbie downers who bring up the age-old debate – can videogame to movie adaptations really work? Well, Deadpool director, Tim Miller is going to give it a darned good try. Miller will also be joined on set by Neal H. Moritz to co-produce, and Jeff Fowler will be brought in to direct the Sonic debut.

    Unlike many other video games that are turned into movies, Sonic the Hedgehog already has a wealth of adaptation under its belt. The game has been adapted for anime, cartoons and has even been made into a (pretty awesome) cartoon series. In fact,the Archie Comics Sonic the Hedgehog comic holds the Guinness World Record for the longest-running comic book series that’s based on a video game. So it’s a pretty big deal. As if that wasn’t enough, the game has recently taken a turn for the better (well, it was already pretty amazing) with their new release, Sonic Mania. So, we reckon it stands a good chance.

    But what do the other fans think? Well, it’s a mixed bag…
