Sonic The Hedgehog is getting a full feature film, mixing animation and live action. Yep.

Sony's already got a couple of videogame movies in the works, what with another Resident Evil film and its animated take on Angry Birds both lined up. And now it's added another: it's going to be bringing Sonic The Hedgehog to the big screen.

Oddly, this one's going to be a mix of live action and computer animation, with Even Susser and Van Robichaux penning a screenplay for the film. The Sonic The Hedgehog movie will also feature key characters from the game franchise.

Sony is working with the Japanese-based Marza Animation Planet on the movie, with Marza being part of the Sega Sammy group. Neal Moritz is overseeing the project.

No release date has been revealed yet, but this is bound to be a good three years away yet.
