...and Jim Carrey as Sonic's nemesis Dr. Eggman.'

'The small town of Green Hills joins forces with a sheriff named Tom Wachowski (James Marsden), on a journey to San Francisco in their efforts to assist Sonic, a blue anthropomorphic hedgehog, and help him battle against the evil Dr. Eggman to recover his rings, while the government is trying to catch Sonic at the same time.'

Don't know who Ben schwartz is but his face fits. Will he be able to carry the sheer physicality of the roll?

This the one that Doughboys Commission Evan Susser and his writing colleague have been working on for seemingly two years.
I did watch Fist Fight out of listening to the podcast. Maybe won't do so for Sonic.

It's being produced by Neal H. Moritz, so there's a 99.9 % chance it will blow donkey dick.  Seriously, apart from The Fast and the Furious movies (well... they have their fans), try and name a genuinely good film he's been involved in.

Seriously though I do hope Ben Schwartz is wearing blue clothes, but I hope his “spines” are just an Adidas rucksack and he does no spinning at all or anything fast.

And his catchphrase is “I’m not a fucking hedgehog and my name isn’t Sonic!”

The Total Recall remake wasn't bad. Perhaps the best of the recent spat of unneeded retreads.

I also see he's got his name down for a Danger Mouse film. Good grief.

21 jump street is meant to be quite good, isn't it?

And Cruel Intentions is... okay.

Sonic's gonna be fantastically shit, though.

I mean it's a lot of a palaver over some rings isn't it?  Why are they bothering?

I hope it starts off in the "real world" like Super Mario Bros (1993). Chuck in a big slide that leads to Green Hill Zone and you have this decade's Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Stick a Knuckles sequel tease in the credits.

I bet Jim Carrey's characterisation of the baddie will take us all totally by surprise!!  I can't imagine how he will play it!!

Every film I can think of that's set in San Francisco looks like cheap crap. Undoubtedly, this will follow suit. Do they give big tax breaks there or something?

21 Jump Street was okay, I guess, though not worth the raves it got.  I liked Cruel Intentions back in the day, though God knows how I'd feel about it now.  The Total Recall remake was the first rehash that made me genuinely angry and I've been numb to them ever since... to avoid a heart-attack.

But nothing has yet matched the greatest videogame movie of all time, Mortal Kombat. Amazing theme tune.

How come Nintendo haven’t done any Donkey Kong films?  There’s more potential for development there than there is for King Kong.

The Jump Street films are legitimately excellent, especially the second one, but judging by his filmography that was a "stopped clock" situation. He had to accidentally stumble across some competent filmmakers at some point.

The Jumpman franchise is Mario, not Sonic.

Don't know who Ben schwartz is

I know him from Jake and Amir. He was the annoying overacting milkman/bloke who sucked off Jake.

Yeah, I watched Jake and Amir, what of it?
