James Marsden (Westworld, X-Men) will be the star of the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog film, Variety reports.


The movie, due out in November 2019, will be a mix of live-action and CG, and is also amazingly the first time the 27 year-old Sega character has appeared on the big screen.

Marsden has past experience with this kind of thing, having starred in Hop a few years back.

Sonic is being directed by Jeff Fowler, who made the 2005 animated short Gopher Broke.

Luke Plunkett is a Senior Editor based in Canberra, Australia. He has written a book on cosplay, designed a game about airplanes, and also runs cosplay.kotaku.com.
