  1. This is it. Sonic the Hedgehog will be coming to theaters courtesy of Paramount Studios next year. According to The Hollywood Reporter, SEGA's blue blur will spin attack his way onto the silver screen on November 15, 2019. It's a bit nebulous as to what form the film will take, though some outlets are reporting that it will be a mixture of CGI and live-action, suggesting that the film might be drawing on the Sonic Adventure games for inspiration. A number of high-profile names, along with a few unknowns, are attached to the project. Neal H. Moritz will produce with Tim Miller, the director of Deadpool, serving as the film's executive producer. Sonic will be adapted to the big screen by first time director Jeff Fowler. Fowler made a name for himself by directing a 2005 Oscar-nominated short titled Gopher Broke. This film seems like it has the potential to be solidly good or fantastically bad, but either way, I'm suddenly a bit more excited for November 15, 2019. Perhaps Sonic might even beat Nintendo's upcoming Mario film into theaters?

  3. Yesterday, Nintendo of America hopped on Twitter to make some pretty massive announcements about upcoming projects. Nintendo kicked off their trio of news blurbs by announcing when Switch owners can expect the system's paid online service to go live. Simply titled Nintendo Switch Online, the service will offer a selection of classic Nintendo games every month for either $3.99 per month, $7.99 every three months, or $19.99 for an entire year. The catch is, unlike Xbox Live Gold or PS+, those games will switch out every month and subscribers will not be able to keep the previous month's games. The service will launch sometime in September 2018. The company then revealed that their next mobile project - Mario Kart! The app will be called Mario Kart Tour. Nintendo gave a rather nebulous release window for the app that states the app will release "in the fiscal year ending in March 2019." Not much more information was made available, but it's pretty interesting to imagine what a mobile Mario Kart title would be like. Finally, Nintendo confirmed the long rumored deal between themselves and animation studio Illumination to make a film based on the Mario franchise. This will be the first film Nintendo has worked on based on one of its characters since the 1993 Super Mario Bros. live-action film. Shigeru Miyamoto has been confirmed to be co-producing the film alongside Illumination CEO and film producer Chris Meledandri. It's pretty shocking that it has taken so long for Nintendo to get back to making films based on the Mario franchise, especially since the very first video game movie was a Super Mario Bros. animated film.

  5. From Kickstarter to the big screen, We Happy Few has come a long way from its humble origins - and it isn't even fully released yet! Variety has reported that We Happy Few developer Compulsion Games has inked a deal with Gold Circle Entertainment and dj2 Entertainment to give them the rights to a We Happy Few film. We Happy Few might prove to be a difficult story to adapt as the game relies on procedural generation. However, the setting and imagery is undeniably rife with opportunities for adaptation. The game takes place in an alternate version of 1960s England where the population has become controlled via a system that ensures every citizen is under the influence of sedative medication that keeps them from seeing reality. One citizen, the player protagonist, manages to buck the medicine and embarks on an attempt to uncover the seedy truth behind the aggressively sterile control of their town. How exactly this will translate onto film remains to be seen, but Gold Circle and dj2 are in the market for writers able to tackle a video game adaptation. Gold Circle made a name for itself as the production company behind films like My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Pitch Perfect. Meanwhile dj2 Entertainment has been handling work on the Donnie Yen vehicle Sleeping Dogs movie and the Sonic the Hedgehog adaptation. The real question I have is how a game that hasn't had a full commercial release as a finished product already got picked up for a movie deal. That's a crazy fast turnaround that makes me nervous, but I wish the best for all involved.

  7. Square Enix's Just Cause series is getting the Hollywood treatment. According to Deadline, a screenplay has already been completed by John Collee, the writer behind Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, and Brad Peyton is slated to direct. Peyton has become known in recent years for his directorial work following the financial success of the Dwayne Johnson vehicle San Andreas. The Just Cause series could put those destructive chops to good use given the game franchise's penchant for exploding... well, pretty much everything. Interestingly, Peyton is also set to direct The Rock's pet video game movie project, Rampage. Jason Momoa, the actor set to portray Aquaman later this year in Warner Bros. Justice League, has reportedly signed on to star in the Just Cause film as Rico Rodriguez. Rico has been the protagonist of the last three Just Cause titles and the film follows his adventures, reportedly taking cues from Just Cause 3. The focus of the film's story centers on a moment during one of his missions that finds Rico beginning to have doubts about whether his cause truly is just. While video game movies tend to get a bad rap, there seems to be a surprising amount of effort and talent behind this attempt that could lead to an enjoyable (and profitable) theatrical release. There's no release window for the film as of yet. View full article
