Nintendo's Mario Brothers To Be Turned Into a Movie

The company has been trying to expand their brand onto the big and small screens, with rumors of a "Legends of Zelda" TV series being developed at Netflix (and which never came to fruition). 24 years after the failure that is the live-action Super Mario Bros. movie, Nintendo is reportedly nearing a deal to make an animated movie based on the hit franchise.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Illumination - the studio that made the Despicable Me movies and spin-off Minions - has been in talks with Nintendo for more than a year. Right now, the deal is one for one movie, but there is potential for more.

Mario was famously brought to the big screen in 1993's live-action adaptation, which starred Bob Hoskins as the portly plumber and John Leguizamo as his brother Luigi. This Super Mario Odyssey glitch lets you kill Mario in the game's co-op mode which lets the player capture a Piranha Plant and then lets them kill Mario. This is the vide game company's first big move forward in a long time, and the implications are extremely significant.

This isn't the only dark secret that Cappy might be hiding, however, with early fan-theories surrounding Super Mario Odyssey's new "capture" ability suggested that Mario might be possessed by the hat as well.

The report notes that Illumination Entertainment, and Universal Pictures by default, could develop this into a multi-film franchise, akin to the Fast and Furious or Despicable Me (both are owned by Universal Pictures) universes.
