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. According to a new report, Nintendo is thinking about developing a Mario movie in collaboration with Illumination Entertainment.
Nintendo Co.is close to an agreement with a US production company to make an animated "Super Mario Bros." movie, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday. The report also reveals that, after negotiating for almost a year, the parties are close to reaching a deal with Nintendo.
The report mentions that Illumination has been in talks with Nintendo about this project for nearly a year.
The agreement would allow for multiple movies based on the Mario universe, though there's only one apparently in the works thus far, The Wall Street Journal reports.
Illumination, which is behind the Despicable Me franchise and subsequent spin-offs, declined to comment. The live-action film starred Bob Hoskins as Mario (Tom Hanks was originally signed on, but the studio felt Hoskins was more bankable), John Leguizamo as Luigi and Dennis Hopper as King Koopa.
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. The movie is believed to be in the very early stages, so it might be years before it reaches theaters.
