Nintendo making Mario movie with USA studio

15 November 2017, 12:25 | Max Haynes

Mario's creator, Shigeru Miyamoto has apparently been involved in the talks, and will likely serve as producer on the film if and when it's made.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Illumination Entertainment is close to striking a deal with Nintendo for an animated film that's going to be based on its popular Mario character.

Super Mario Brothers is a video game that follows plumber brothers Mario and Luigi as they navigate their fantasy world of evil turtles and poisonous mushrooms. With the recent release of Super Mario Odyssey for the Nintendo Switch on October 27, TheDominoKing made a decision to craft a domino tribute to the 3D game - and after two months of continuous work, the results pretty much speak for themselves. The Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo led adventure comedy has maintained such a sour reputation that it's looked like no one would ever dare to attempt a Mario movie again.

There may be no hard confirmation of this deal, but Nintendo has been reportedly interested in licensing their characters to other mediums (remember Mario's cameo in Pixels?).

FBI Launches Probe Into Meek Mill Judge
TMZ reported allegations that the judge tried to strong-arm Mill into leaving Roc Nation for music manager Charlie Mack. The source continued, 'Mack had previously told Meek how he 'knows the judge and he could help him with his case'.


Back in 2014, Sony was in talks with Nintendo for an animated Super Mario Bros. film but a deal was never announced.

The report states that Illumination has been speaking with Nintendo for over a year to reach an agreement.

Nintendo is hesitant to make trade deals after several bad third-party video games almost destroyed them in the 90s.

Let's all hope (and pray) that Nintendo, together with Illumination Entertainment, can pull this off. But because it's still in the early stages of development, we'll probably have to wait several years for its release.
