Jim Carrey is set to go up against Sonic the Hedgehog in Paramount’s upcoming live-action/CGI hybrid movie.
Deadline reports Carrey is currently in talks to star as the villainous Dr. Robotnik in what is presumably a live-action role. The story will follow Sonic trying to stop Robotnik from taking over the world.
The rest of the film’s cast so far includes James Marsden (Westworld) and Tika Sumpter. Jeff Fowler will direct the movie from a screenplay by Pat Casey & Josh Miller. Neal Moritz, Mie Onishi, and Tim Miller are producing.
