They should put a Chris-chan cameo in.
Looks like we have Deadpool director Tim Miller executive producing the film plus a directoral debut for visual effects artist behind Where the Wild Things Are.
I want to know how they are going to put this film against the Flash movie since they are both coming out in 2018.

I just posted about that on the STH thread at the video games section.
This is pretty unexpected, no? Funnily enough, Tim Miller and Jeff Fowler teamed up to do an animated short back in 2004 called Gopher Broke, so....good thing?
Executive producing means somewhere between jack and shit. It's a symbolic title conferring no actual creative involvement.
It's usually applied to financial donors and people whom the creators feel obligated to acknowledge, such as a source material's original creator or someone who the producer really liked or something.

Still, having the same people who help make the CG cut scenes in Sonic games is pretty good. They do good work.
Flash is likely gonna be delayed anyway. It'll be interesting to see which one gets to theaters first.
I hope Flash Movie development is smoother than expected, just purely for the humour of the Flash Movie getting pushed ahead x3
So, it's been about half a year since the last post on this forum.
Has there been any progress?
If something came up there would be posts here sharing news or updates.

The movie is releasing in 2019.
Wasn't "Sonic pals around with some normal humans" the premise of Sonic X?
Now Paramount is handling it. But most of the staff remain unchanged.
Will executives ever learn that concept is tired and stupid?
Eh, as long as there's no bestiality, I think we'll be fine.
And maybe Ben Schwartz but nobody cares for him.
Hmmmm....as far as I know, Paramount has had an even worse box office run since last year, though the bombs that have been put out lately are nowhere near as terrible or divisive as what Sony has put out (you can imagine the sighs of relief over at Paramount failing to get the rights to The Emoji Movie).
Since we know Sega and Paramount will finance the film 50-50, I'm not sure if Paramount will be willing to fund their share of the budget without outside help. Perhaps that was why Sony dropped the film rights, because they weren't going to get help outside themselves or their financing partners (just recently, Sony lost partner Lone Star Capital because of all the money losers that they've released, notably Ghostbusters (2016)).
Could Paramount tap someone like MGM or DreamWorks to help fiance their share? It's quite possible. It would be very interesting if MGM got on board, because they used to own the Sonic film license in the 90's before letting the license expire.
It seems Paramount financing partner Skydance Media has hired a former DreamWorks executive as "President Of Animation."
I wonder if that means Skydance could be involved in co-producing the Sonic the Hedgehog movie in some capacity, though it's doubtful considering there's already enough animation studios involved.

It's targeting a 2019 release.
One thing I'm worried about is the writing team. If you look at their Imdb's, the movies they work on aren't promising.
Most of the production staff aren't exactly big-name talent aside from Moritz and Miller, but that might actually work in the film's favor because it could give us something new.
The only qualm I have with the film's release date is that it's being pit against the Wonder Woman sequel and Bond 25. However, those two film franchises appeal to a different demographic from Sonic so I wouldn't be too concerned, unless Paramount wants to really go to the polarizing Darker and Edgier angle which might not sit well with some people.
