Jim Carrey is in negotiations to portray Doctor Robotnik, aka Eggman, in the Sonic the Hedgehog movie. It was announced at the end of May that James Marsden will star in the film, but it isn't clear which role he will have. Additionally, it's been reported that the production is trying to nail down Paul Rudd to play Sonic's police officer friend named Tom.
It would herald Carrey’s first foray into big-budget Hollywood fare since the relative failures of Kick-Ass 2 and Dumb and Dumber Too, with his last outing being the critically mauled Dark Crimes.
Sonic the Hedgehog is going to blend live-action and CGI and will be directed by Jeff Fowler.
Set to speed into cinemas in November 2019, Sonic the Hedgehog will be directed by Jeff Fowler.
