Paramount Pictures and Sega Sammy want more of a certain blue Hedgehog! A sequel to Sonic: the Hedgehog is in development, per Variety!
Director Jeff Fowler will return for the second movie. Pat Casey and Josh Miller will also pen the script for the sequel as they did for the first. It is still very early in the production stages for any casting news.
Sonic: the Hedgehog hit number one at the box office earlier this year. It holds the record for the highest earning opening weekend for a video game based film. The movie is widely considered a success among critics and fans alike. The original popular 90s video game of the same name remains a classic to this day.
The first film follows Sonic as he tries to make Earth his home while speeding into some help and a little trouble along the way. The film stars Jim Carrey, James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, and Tika Sumpter.
