If you're feeling a little confused after reading that headline, well, uh, it's real. It's a thing that's happening, according to The Hollywood Reporter:
Just over a week after stepping away from Deadpool, director Tim Miller has set his sights on a new gig: developing an adaptation of Sonic the Hedgehog for Sony Pictures. Miller and his longtime Blur Studio collaborator Jeff Fowler have been tapped to work on the project, on which Fowler would make his feature directorial debut.
The film is apparently intended to be a CGI-animated/live-action hybrid and family-oriented. Just to make sure we're clear here: we're talking about the director of the critically acclaimed and absolutely filthy Marvel comic adaptation suddenly developing a movie around everyone's favorite hedgehog.
