  • Sounds Like Jim Carrey Will Play Dr. Robotnik in The SONIC THE HEDGEHOG Movie

We recently found out that James Marsden has snagged the lead role in the live action film, which left us wondering who could fill the CGI shoes of Sonic baddie, Dr Robotnik.

The two-time Golden Globe victor (who, if we're being honest, was truly snubbed when he didn't receive an Oscar nomination for "The Truman Show" or "Man on the Moon") will return to the screen as the villainous Dr. Robotnik in the upcoming "Sonic the Hedgehog" movie. In the film, Sonic's mission is to prevent Dr. Eggman/Robotnik from attaining world domination.

What do you think of Jim Carrey being casted as Robotnik? Neal Moritz, Mie Onishi, and Tim Miller are producing. That deal ultimately fell apart, though, allowing Paramount Studios to swoop in and secure the film rights for the character earlier this year.

Sonic the Hedgehog will take its cues from the popular games, focusing on Sonic's attempts to battle the evil Doctor Robotnik who is on a quest to assemble the Chaos emeralds.

Heat Wave: Friday to kick off first heat wave of 2018
Anyone spending significant time outdoors tomorrow is susceptible to heat stroke or heat exhaustion , the weather service said . Residents are warned to "drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, and stay out of the sun", the agency says.

It is being directed by Jeff Fowler, who was Oscar-nominated for his short animation Gopher Broke, while the screenplay is being worked on by no less than three writers at the moment, including the minds behind 22 Jump Street (hooray!) and The Cloverfield Paradox (boo!).

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is slated to open November 15, 2019. Sega launched the Sonic game in 1991 and has sold more than 360 million copies to date, including both packaged and digital games on consoles, tablets, and mobile.

Carrey, meanwhile, last starred in Dark Crimes and Netflix docJim & Andy: The Great Beyond and he's been executive producing Showtime series I'm Dying Up Here. Carrey is represented by WME and attorney Deborah Klein.
