Minions studio reportedly creating a Super Mario movie

With the Despicable Me and Minions films being pretty good, there is hope that this Mario film might turn out rather well.

Super Mario Bros. already received an infamous Hollywood adaptation in 1993 that was panned by the critics and bombed at the box office.

According to Wall Street Journal, Nintendo is now in negotiations with Illumination (Despicable Me, Minions) about making an animated Super Mario Bros. movie with gaming legend Shigeru Miyamoto acting as a producer. In 1993, their live action Super Mario Brothers movie flopped and, since then, the company has been anxious to put their beloved characters to the movies. Representatives of both companies refused to comment on the story.

Illumination Entertainment, the company behind Despicable Me - which foisted Minions on the world have joined hands with the largest film studios in the world i.e. The report also reveals that, after negotiating for almost a year, the parties are close to reaching a deal with Nintendo.

This reveal comes on the heels of the mammothly successful Super Mario Odyssey video game for the Nintendo Switch, and is likely a great move to help capitalize on the character's continuing success.

The prospects of new a "Super Mario" film is also a big deal because Nintendo has kept its intellectual property largely off movie screens for decades.

Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of the iconic game series is involved in the development of the film.
