According to Variety, Paramount Pictures and Sega Sammy have confirmed that they have started on the development for the sequel to Sonic the Hedgehog.
The original filmmaking team have been retained for the sequel, with Jeff Fowler directing, and Pat Casey and Josh Miller writing the script. This is no surprise given the reception the first movie received, both critically and in the box office.
Based on the popular video game franchise from Sega, Sonic the Hedgehog was released in February of this year. It tells the story of the world’s speediest hedgehog (voiced by Ben Schwartz). Sonic and his new best friend Tom (played by James Marsden) team up to defend the planet from the evil genius Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) as he plots world domination.
The movie is still in the developmental stage, so no decisions have been made regarding casting or a production start date, though it seems likely that Schwartz and Marsden will be back for the sequel.
