By Eva Araújo (Web correspondent)
Jim Carrey has been busy lately but apparently we will get to see him in a new movie again soon. Jim is in final negotiations to play the villain in the movie "Sonic the Hedgehog" by director Jeff Fowler.
The live-action movie will feature both CGI and comedic performances as "The Mask" and Jim is set to play the character 'Robotnik'.
The movie, based on the SEGA video game, is set to release in November 15, 2019 by Paramount who picked up the film right after Sony lapse them.
"The game features a blue hedgehog named Sonic whose peaceful life is often interrupted by Doctor Eggman, a mad scientist who is trying to conquer the world, and by Doctor Robotnik, another scientist who has imprisoned animals in robots and stolen magical Chaos Emeralds. The game was enormously successful and established the Sega Genesis console as a major player in the video game industry."
This is amazing news and we believe Jim Carrey will do an amazing performance!
We at JCO will keep you updated as more news come.
