Paramount Pictures has taken on the ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ hybrid movie based on the popular video game character.

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is racing across town from to Paramount Pictures, which picked up the rights to the video game character after Sony Entertainment put the project in turnaround, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Neal H. Moritz’s Original Film will produce the movie at Paramount, and much of the crew attached to the project at Sony remains on board.

Among them: Deadpool director Tim Miller is executive producer, while Miller’s Blur Studio colleague Jeff Fowler will direct. Toby Ascher is executive producer, Dmitri Johnson and Dan Jevons are co-producers.

The plan calls for the movie to be a blend of CG animation and live-action, and will be the first feature film to be made starring the popular SEGA game character.
