The Sonic series has sold over 360 million copies worldwide since its launch in 1991, making it one of the biggest video game franchise of all time.

The film will look to capture Sonic's irreverent tone and spirit, reuniting him with some of the most revered and infamous characters of the franchise, including the evil Dr. Eggman. For Sega fans, your favourite hedgehog is coming to a big screen near you after Paramount Pictures nabbed the rights to Sonic the Hedgehog, the Hollywood Reporter wrote today. Deadpool director Tim Miller is attached to executive produce. The film's director, Jeff Fowler's, IMDb page is light on credits. Fowler has previously directed the animated short A Gentleman's Duel and the Oscar-nominated reboot of Gopher Broke.

But despite his wide appeal and iconic status, one thing we have never seen: Sonic the Hedgehog in is a feature-length film. 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.
