Keanu Reeves Will Voice Sonic The Hedgehog 3’s Shadow

Keanu Reeves

Keanu Reeves, star of “John Wick,” will play Shadow in “Sonic the Hedgehog 3,” a source told the media. Keanu Reeves joins a cast that features Jim Carrey as the evil Dr. Robotnik and Ben Schwartz as Sonic. A representative for the movie’s production company, Paramount Pictures, declined to comment. Anthropomorphic hedgehog Shadow (whose fur is black, Sonic’s is blue) is something of an antihero in the games. He frequently opposes Sonic as well. In addition to the “Matrix” trilogy, Keanu Reeves has credits in the films “Speed,” “Bram Stoker’s Dracula,” and “My Own Private Idaho.” Next, he’ll star beside Ana de Armas in the “Ballerina” spinoff of “John Wick.” 

Keanu Reeves To Appear In Another Multi-Starrer Film Along With Sonic

Reeves will also appear with Aziz Ansari, Seth Rogen, Keke Palmer, and Sandra Oh in the film “Good Fortune.”

The director of the most recent “Sonic” sequel, Jeff Fowler, comes back after helming the previous two films in the franchise. “Sonic 3” will be produced by Neal H. Moritz, Toby Ascher, Toru Nakahara, and Hitoshi Okuno. It will hit theatres on December 20, 2024. With a total global box office of $725.2 million for “Sonic the Hedgehog” and “Sonic the Hedgehog 2,” the franchise is among Paramount’s most lucrative. Additionally, the company is producing “Knuckles,” a spin-off series that will debut on Paramount+. The first word of Reeves’ casting in “Sonic 3” came from “The John Campea Show.”
