‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Film Pushed Back 3 Months to February 14, 2020

May 24, 2019

Paramount’s live-action/animated hybrid film adaptation ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ film will now release February 14, 2020. The three-month push out of November 8, 2019, and into Valentine’s Day weekend, is due to the visual effects redesign of the titular character.

Director Jeff Fowler made the announcement on Twitter today:

Moreover, the cast includes Ben Schwartz, James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, Neal McDonough, Adam Pally, and Jim Carrey.

The premise is below:

“Based on the Sega video game franchise, the film follows a small-town sheriff (Marsden) in the rural town of Green Hills who teams up with Sonic (Schwartz) to help him escape from the government who is looking to capture him.”

Jeff Fowler makes his directorial debut on the film. He did the short film ‘Gopher Broke,’ an Academy Award nominee for Best Animated Short Film. The screenplay is from Patrick Casey & Josh Miller (’12 Deadly Days’) and Oren Uziel (’22 Jump Street’). Uziel is currently working on both a ‘Supergirl’ film and the ‘Detective Pikachu’ sequel.
