`John Wick` star Keanu Reeves will be voicing `Shadow` in the upcoming action-adventure comedy film `Sonic the Hedgehog 3`, according to Variety.

He joins a cast that includes Ben Schwartz as Sonic, as well as Jim Carrey as the villainous Dr Robotnik, the sources have confirmed.

`Shadow` first appeared in 2001`s `Sonic Adventure 2`, and he has since become one of the franchise`s most famous characters as an edgy antihero. He`s also often an antagonist to Sonic.

Reeves` filmography includes `Speed`, `Bram Stoker`s Dracula`, `My Own Private Idaho`, and the `Matrix` trilogy. He will next star in the `John Wick` spinoff, `Ballerina`, opposite Ana de Armas (his character`s unveiling in a new teaser released last week at CinemaCon drew enormous acclaim from the gathering of movie theatre executives, demonstrating the actor`s box office success). Reeves will also co-star in `Good Fortune` with Aziz Ansari, Seth Rogen, Keke Palmer, and Sandra Oh.

Jeff Fowler, who oversaw the first two `Sonic` movies, is returning as the director of the latest sequel. Neal H Moritz, Toby Ascher, Toru Nakahara and Hitoshi Okuno will produce `Sonic 3`, which will open in theatres on Dec. 20, 2024.

The franchise is one of Paramount`s most successful, with the combined global box office for “Sonic the Hedgehog” and “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” standing at 725.2 million dollars. The studio is also making a spin-off series, “Knuckles,`” that will premiere on Paramount+, reported Variety.
