It seems the shooting schedule has been mailed out, with the new logo too? (Source is https://twitter.com/...141586226581505)

That's pretty cool. Thanks for showing us that. The logo actually looks - good? And "Hedgehog Films" is hilarious. I still can't believe (given we know how ridiculous the story is) that this is a serious thing that's actually going ahead with serious and determined people working on it. It almost had Paul Rudd for Christ's sake. And it's probably going to feature Jim Carrey.

The posts on here when the trailer goes up are going to be a sight to behold. Guessing the trailer might drop at the close of the year or perhaps early next.

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG With Jim Carrey & James Marsden Starts Filming in Vancouver

Paramount's live-action/animated adaption of popular video game Sonic the Hedgehog (working title: Casino Night) starts filming in Vancouver today, with a major shoot planned for Ladysmith later on.

Filming dates: July 30th to September 26th.

What's it about?

Sonic the Hedgehog and his pals Tails and Knuckles team up to stop Dr. Eggman Robotnik's plan for world dominaton.

Jim Carrey is Dr. Eggman Robotnik.

James Marsden is Tom, a sarcastic patrol cop who befriends Sonic.

Neal H. Moritz and Deadpool director Tim Miller are producing.

The live action/animation adaption is written by Evan Susser, Van Robichaux, Patrick Casey and Josh Miller and will be directed by Jeff Fowler.

Sonic the Hedgehog is expected in theatres November 15, 2019.


Via ResetERA here: https://www.resetera...ing-today.58811
And the Hollywood North here: http://www.hollywood...-vancouver.html

So Jim Carrey seemingly confirmed as Robotnik and a working title of "Casino Night".

.

As for thoughts on the recent news: The Sonic 2 reference is cool I guess? The production team seem to be aware of the games at the very least? Still expecting this to be a complete clusterfuck in all honesty but I'm in (probably opening night) for Jim Carrey. Hoping for a Mortal Kombat situation where the film turns out unexpectedly good. Though I don't have high hopes.

If Carrey gives a star performance here this could become a cult classic. Or it's just going to be the car crash we all expect. November 2019 is when we find out.

Man this is going to be a heck of a train wreck or a cult classic. I mean don't get me wrong Jim Carrey is a huge get for Robotnik, while I feel he might have to wear a fatsuit he still a great Actor to have. But knowing how videogame movies are the worst of the worst in terms of adaptation I'm 90% sure this movie will be a disaster.

Reminder of how high profile and seeming fit Bob Hoskins was for Mario in that carcrash of a film.... I do not hold any hopes out of this being good.

Very true in that Jim alone might not be able to save this - but also remember that the Super Mario Bros. movie was liked in a "so bad it's good" kind of way and is somewhat of a cult classic nowadays.

I think that might be the best we can hope for here. I'd be super shocked if this turns out to be genuinely good. That might be a distant impossible dream. But so bad it's good? Possible.

I highly doubt it's going to be as bad as this:

Welcome to Green Hill:

Not sure if 1981 is a coincidence or someone messed up when commissioning the sign.

Edit: Or did they think 1991 didn't sound old enough so they went with the year Sega started doing arcades?

If you look closer at the Sheriff's car in the background, it says Green Hills btw. Nice homage to sonic 2 8-bit. :P

That Police Car clearly says Green HILLS.

All these news sites reporting this are not paying proper tribute to the glory that is the SMS version of Sonic 2. Quickly, flock to the comment sections to force them to amend this mistake! :v:

In all seriousness though, Green Hill is looking a lot more like Sand Hill right now. It'd be nice to see a bit more... Well, Green. Maybe when we see more than a passing population sign.

If there isn't at least a little bit of checkerboard somewhere, I will be sorely miffed. :colbert:

If they were gonna do that, I wish they would have filmed it somewhere tropical. Palm trees instead of pine trees, y'know?

i always wanted to see a Canadian themed Sonic world but not like this lmao

God please save us.

EDIT: Thinking about it a little more, it's a cool retro-throwback reference and this along with "Casino Night" as the project's code name does suggest the production team are aware of and adhering to the games to some extent - but the film's still suffering from the "live action x CGI mash-up" conceptual critical flaw which just indicates that the movie will be a very probable trainwreck. I stand by what I said. It'll be a Super Mario Bros movie level cult classic and that's probably what we should be hoping for. Because otherwise it's going to be an irredeemable car crash.

That said when we inevitably see the trailer for this Retro will be glorious. Can't wait to see the replies on here when that happens.
