Could a "Sonic the Hedgehog" Movie Be in the Works at Sony Pictures?

Sony Pictures registers a handful of Sonic film-related domains

As spotted over at Kotaku, Sony Pictures recently registered some interesting domains related to the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. Though no plans have been announced, the domains registered last week include sonicthehedgehog-movie.com, sonicthehedgehog-movie.net, and sonicthedgehogmovie.net.

 

Whether or not anything comes of this, it hints at Sony having nabbed the feature film rights to Sega's speedy mascot. Sony Pictures Animation has produced both fully animated and live-action/animation hybrid films, so yeah, now you get to spend the rest of the day picturing a Sonic the Hedgehog film created in the style of The Smurfs 2

 

Maybe they'll hit up Blue Core Studios for consultation:

 

Lest we forget, there's also a Sonic Boom cartoon coming to Cartoon Network next fall.
