Nintendo's Mario Brothers To Be Turned Into a Movie

Nintendo's original characters have been in the crosshairs of countless movie studios over the years, though Mario is likely seen as the crown jewel.

A deal is close to being struck for a Super Mario Bros film, according to the Wall Street Journal (although they're paywalled, so actually we're getting the news via Nintendo Life).

One of the main requirements for Nintendo, according to the report, is a certain degree of creative control over its signature character, perhaps the most recognizable video game face of all time.

Sources say that Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of Mario Bros., has been included in the talks and likely will be a producer on the movie.

So far, the deal between Illumination and Nintendo is for only one film, but that could change.

Nintendo has famously been hesitant to allow its franchises to be adapted into movies. The live-action film, which starred Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo as Mario and Luigi, was a commercial and critical bomb, but has since then gained a cult following.

Illumination's Mac Guff studio in Paris who has been responsible for the Despicable Me series of films has commenced development on the film with the release date unconfirmed.

The film was a disaster both critically and commercially, and is often cited in discussions about the sad history of Hollywood's various video game adaptations.

Neither Nintendo or Illumination Pictures commented on the Journal's report, but it's not that much of a stretch.
