90’s babies will be lining up early for this.
Sony Pictures Entertainment and Sega Sammy’s CG animation film production company Marza Animation Planet announced their plans to develop a film based on Sonic the Hedgehog, a $1 billion franchise, on Tuesday. The film will be produced by 22 Jump Street producer Neal H. Moritz and written by UCB’s Susser and Robichaux.
According to a statement from Columbia Pictures, Sonic will reunite Sonic with “some of the most revered and infamous characters of the franchise,” and that is including Dr. Eggman.
President of production Hannah Minghella said in the same statement:
“There are limitless stories to tell with a character like Sonic the Hedgehog, and a built-in international fan base. Along with our wonderful creative partners at Marza, we’re looking to capture everything that generations of fans know and love about Sonic while also growing his audience wider than ever before.”

Batman fans are just now coming down from hearing that the next actor to take on the role of the Dark Knight will be Ben Affleck, they might have to brace for some more news. If his instagram pictures are correct, Justin Bieber might be playing the role of Robin.
Beiber sparked the frenzy of casting rumors when he posted a photo of himself holding the script to the upcoming “Man of Steel” sequel “Batman vs. Superman.”
The 20-year-old pop star captioned the picture with “#robin ??” indicating that he might be up for the role of the caped crusader’s sidekick. The script features a “Bieber” watermark, so it was clearly intended for the singer. But Bieber could be up for a smaller part in the film.
It was rumored weeks ago that another Justin, would up for a role in the new film as well. In a radio interview with Jim & Kim, Timberlake mentioned that he would love to play the role of the Riddler in the next film.
Neither Justin has been confirmed to play any role in the up-coming film.
