Jim Carrey Eyed For Villain Role In Sonic The Hedgehog Movie


Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
actor Jim Carrey is reportedly in final negotiations to join the cast of Paramount Pictures’ Sonic the Hedgehog as the film’s villain.

The picture will adapt the multimillion-selling videogame franchise about the titular super-fast blue hedgehog, and will depict his quest to save an assortment of woodland creatures who have been captured and forced inside robotic killing machines.

Jeff Fowler is on board to direct, with James Marsden and Tika Sumpter both already signed-on to star.

Carrey is up for the role of the evil Dr. Robotnik, Sonic’s mad scientist archenemy, and the one responsible for the capture and enslavement of the aforementioned woodland critters. No release date has yet been set for the film, which will be a blend of live-action and CG animation.
