Sony Pictures and Sega planning annual Sonic movies

Many Tails.

Sega's teamed up with Sony Pictures to make films about its mascot Sonic the Hedgehog.

The plan, according to Deadline, is to pump out a film a year.

Sega's Japanese Marza Animation Planet company will help make the films, which will be a mixture of CGI and live-action - possibly like Sony's Smurfs films, pondered the Hollywood Reporter.

Evan Susser and Van Robichaux - the duo writing a live-action Jetsons film - will handle the screenplay. Apparently the plot will face Sonic off against his iconic enemies.

Influential Fast & Furious and 22 Jump Street producer, Neal Moritz, is pulling the strings.


'Finally,' thought Sonic. 'Now they'll see.'
