Apparently Sonic 2 could represent Jim Carrey ‘s last time on the big screen.
It was he himself who introduced the matter in the course of a recent interview, adding that it is not currently a final decision:
It depends. If the angels bring me a script written in gold ink, and if it really matters to people, I might as well move on. But for the moment I’ve decided to take a break.
I really enjoy my quiet life, painting… I love my spiritual life. I know that other celerities would never say such a thing, but I feel I have given enough.
The actor then went on to say:
I will remain the same in the world, also because the imprint I have left is deeper than you think. You don’t need to be a handyman to make a mark.
Sonic 2 will arrive in Italian cinemas on April 7th. This is the plot:
After settling in Green Hills, Sonic can’t wait to prove that he has what it takes to be a true hero.
The new challenge is not long in coming: Dr. Robotnik is back with a new ally, Knuckles, who will help him in the search for an emerald that has the power to destroy civilization. With his new adventure partner Tails, Sonic embarks on a journey around the world to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands.
Confirmed the returns of Ben Schwartz ( Sonic ), James Marsden ( Tom Wachowski ), Tika Sumpter ( Maddie Wachowski ), Jim Carrey ( Doctor Ivo Robotnik ) and Lee Majdoub ( Agent Stone ). They will be joined by Shemar Moore .
The sequel will introduce Tails and Knuckles . Colleen O’Shaughnessey , who plays Tails in video games, also voices him in the film. Knuckles is portrayed by Idris Elba .
Screenplay, production and direction
The screenplay is again the work of Patrick Casey and Josh Miller . Also returning are Neal H. Mortiz, Toby Ascher and Toru Nakahara as producers, and Haijime Satomi, Haruki Satomi and Tim Miller as executive producers. Jeff Fowler is still directing .
The success of the first film
Sonic grossed $ 306 million worldwide against a budget of 95, and is the highest-grossing video game adaptation in North America. Even the digital release – anticipated for the Covid-19 emergency – went very well. The project was saved at the last: we remember that the first design of the blue hedgehog was heavily criticized by fans, butParamountlistened to them and changed it, making it more faithful to the original.
A video game icon
