Nintendo and Universal in talks for animated Mario Bros. movie

A New Mario Movie Could Happen As Nintendo Reportedly Nears Deal With Despicable Me Studio Report: Nintendo Making Animated Mario Movie With Studio Behind Minions

The Wall Street Journal reports that Nintendo is in talks with Universal and Illumination Entertainment (the shop behind the "Despicable Me" franchise) for an animated movie version of their popular video game series. The aforementioned Super Mario Bros., released in 1993, was a critical and commercial failure, although it did leave us with a truly magical cinematic moment. Representatives of both companies refused to comment on the story. All the information available to the WSJ comes from sources close to the project.

Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto is said to have been playing a key part in the negotiations and could serve as a producer on any eventual film.

This time around it'll be an animated film, from Minions and Shrek studio Universal Animation. The film will be constructed in Illumination's Paris-based Mac Guff studio, and will take some time to develop.

Mario and Luigi have appeared on the big screen before, in a 1994 live-action film starring Bob Hoskins.

In Super Mario Odyssey Nintendo introduces players to Cappy, an anthropomorphic hat that lets ex-plumber Mario control enemies and objects by throwing it in their general direction.
