Thanks to Crunchyroll user tglover157 for the tip! Fowler was the director of the 2005 Academy Award-nominated animated short film "Gopher Broke", which was produced by Miller. Miller is not directing the movie though as one has yet to be named.
It's been a huge trend within the last few years to adapt video games in to films. Sonic has had a comic book series and many cartoons, but never a feature length film. For Sega fans, your favourite hedgehog is coming to a big screen near you after Paramount Pictures nabbed the rights to Sonic the Hedgehog, the Hollywood Reporter wrote today. As if that wasn't enough, the game has recently taken a turn for the better (well, it was already pretty amazing) with their new release, Sonic Mania.
Sonic the Hedgehog is scheduled for a 2019 release. Sonic the Hedgehog's screenwriters are more prolific but their joint credits on titles like Team Hot Wheels: Build the Epic Race don't fill me with optimism.
