The Hollywood Reporter has word that Paramount Pictures has secured the rights to an upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog that’s set to be a blend of live-action and CGI characters. What’s more interesting, though, is that Deadpool director Tim Miller is now attached as producer.
The video game adaptation also has a director in the form of Jeff Fowler. “Jeff is an incredible director with strong story instincts,” Miller said in a statement addressing the directorial announcement. “The world of Sonic presents the perfect opportunity for him to leverage his experience in animation to bring new dimension to this iconic character.” The screenplay was written by Patrick Casey, and Josh Miller.
James Cameron has revealed to Variety that Terminator 6, or Terminator 3, or whatever it’s going to be called, will be released on July 26th, 2019. The film will star Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton, with both reprising their roles from the first two films, which the new film will follow.
The film is set to begin to a new trilogy that will pass the baton to a new group of characters both from modern times, as well as the future.
Deadline is reporting that we finally have a bit of forward motion on the adaptation of William Gibson’s bar-setting cyberpunk novel, Neuromancer. Tim Miller (Deadpool) has been attached to the adaptation. In 2007, Joseph Kahn (Torque) was attached. Later, Vicenzo Natali (Cube) was going to direct. It’s been a long journey for the novel that launched the career of Gibson, and started its own genre.
Tim Miller is currently working with James Cameron to launch a new Terminator trilogy, so to say this is still on the back-burner is an understatement, but at least we have some news.
