Paramount Pictures and SEGA have been planning a Sonic the Hedgehog movie for years, and there's finally been same major developments this year. James Marsden has joined the cast and we've heard reports that Jim Carrey will play Dr. Robotnik. We even have a targeted release date set for next November.
Yesterday, the film took its next big step, as Paramount officially began filming. The first image to surface from filming shows very little, but the caption notes that it's being filmed in the town of Ladysmith in British Columbia. SEGA and Paramount have remained tight-lipped when it comes to plot details and casting (outside of Marsden) so we don't yet have much to work with, but more details should continue trickling out steadily now that filming has begun.
