Streets of Rage Movie Reportedly in Development With John Wick Creator

Tuesday, April 19th, 2022

Deadline have revealed that Paramount are developing a Streets of Rage movie with John Wick franchise creator Derek Kolstad. dj2 Entertainment are also tied to the project who recently signed a contract with Amazon to develop an adaptation of the video game It Takes Two for cinema and television.

The film has supposedly been green-lit off the back of Sonic the Hedgehog 2’s box office success. dj2 produced both Sonic the Hedgehog Paramount movies and currently has an impressive amount of video games its planning to adapt in their portfolio.

As with any early movie development reporting, we urge our readers to not get their hopes up. Multiple video game adaptations have been green-lit in the past and some even making it as far as casting and promotional material before being shelved indefinitely (Kane & Lynch being a great example). If the Streets of Rage movie does happen, don’t expect to hear or even see anything for quite a while.

New Sonic Design Debuts in Brand New Sonic Movie Trailer | Video Spotlight

Tuesday, November 12th, 2019

After the negative reception of Sonic’s look in the first trailer for the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie, Paramount Pictures have gone back to the drawing board, delayed the film until February 2020 and given the visual effects team some extra time to redesign the character. We now have our first look at Sonic’s redesigned with this brand new trailer. Check it out below:

While the design still looks quite similar to the original, with Sonic having 2 separated eyes and lots of finer spines on his back, he definitely looks more like his game model with an overall cuter look and the addition of gloves instead of white fur on his hands. His shoes are also more comparable to those of the games as well.

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie will now launch on February 14th 2020. Ben Schwartz voices Sonic with James Marsden playing his police officer friend Tom and Jim Carrey taking the role of Dr. Robotnik.
