Nintendo's Mario Brothers To Be Turned Into a Movie

Super Mario Odyssey Multiplayer Lets Cappy Kill Mario A New Mario Movie Could Happen As Nintendo Reportedly Nears Deal With Despicable Me Studio

According to a new report from the Wall Street Journal, Illumination Entertainment is nearing an agreement with Nintendo to create a Super Mario Bros. movie.

Super Mario is coming back to the big screen.

Over recent years Nintendo's been making a major effort to expand its commercial efforts - there's been merchandise and various tie-ins, most notably plans for a Universal Studios Japan attraction.

Let's face it, Illumination are one of the best animation houses out there at the moment, so they're more than flawless to bring a new Super Mario Brothers movie to the screen.

Tyson Foods, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSN) To Report Earnings
TRADEMARK VIOLATION NOTICE: This piece of content was originally posted by Week Herald and is the sole property of of Week Herald. The company reported $1.43 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, topping the Zacks' consensus estimate of $1.19 by $0.24.

It's important to note that a deal is not yet done, and both Nintendo and Universal have declined to comment.

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.

Illumination is one of the world's most successful animation studios, having made more than $3.7 billion from its four Despicable Me films, and enjoyed further success with The Secret Life of Pets in 2016.

The characters, or any Nintendo character in fact, haven't been seen on the big-screen since the disastrous Super Mario Brothers movie in 1993 which starred Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo. Illumination produces its movies for distribution via Comcast-owned Universal, a potential relationship no doubt helped by the aforementioned Theme Park deals.
