Jim Carrey will rely more on his natural, rubber-faced talents and pure charisma and less on CGI trickery when taking on the role of Dr. Robotnik in the upcoming Sonic movie, according to a recent report.

During a Television Critics Association press tour, Carrey recently revealed that Sonic the Hedgehog‘s Dr. Robotnik will be a live-action character, not CGI like the titular Sonic.

I’m a ’90s kid who has a soft spot for slapstick comedy, so movies like Dumb and DumberThe Mask, and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective were staples of my VCR. Seeing Carrey hamming it up again on the big screen is enough reason for me to see a Sonic movie in theaters, against my better judgment, in the hopes of somehow recapturing even a hint of the joy I used to feel before I grew up to become a cynical pile of self-loathing, i.e., an adult.

Reports about the movie’s plot indicate that it will take place in the small town of Green Hill, where a CGI Sonic will team up with small-town cop Tom Wachowski (played by Westworld‘s James Marsden) to foil Robotnik’s latest scheme, which I’m guessing involves turning all the town’s wildlife into blood-thirsty robots and using that to distract them from the fact that he’s ruining their water supply by fracking for Chaos Emeralds.

There’s still no word on who’s playing Sonic, but if Jaleel White isn’t at least in the running, someone at Paramount needs to get fired.

The Sonic movie is set to release in theaters on November 15th, 2019.
