  • Nintendo set to bring Mario to the big screen with Minions animation studio

This isn't the first time the Mario Bros would have been subject of a movie, but the 1993 live action movie that starred Bob Hoskins was quite a reimagining of Nintendo's property. The report also reveals that, after negotiating for almost a year, the parties are close to reaching a deal with Nintendo. They've picked up considerable steam in recent years, though, with rumors of Zelda movies/TV shows and Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima explicitly saying that the company was looking to make partnerships to use their IP outside of video games. Illumination is probably best known for the Despicable Me franchise and its spinoff, Minions. If Mario does indeed wind up on the big screen once again, Nintendo may be willing to give some of its other franchises the Hollywood treatment, as the company's CEO Tatsumi Kimishima told Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun a year ago that the gaming firm is in talks with various entities to create movies based on its characters.

Nintendo is reportedly close to signing a deal with Universal Pictures and French animation studio Illumination to bring iconic video game mascot Mario back to the big screen more than two decades after the plumber's ill-fated big-screen debut. I'm not sure if an animated film could visually do more than say, Super Mario Odyssey's brief cutscenes, but I'd be interested in anyone attempting to make a 80 minute or so story out of it.

Electric shuttle bus returning to downtown Las Vegas roads
While the accident wasn't caused by the autonomous bus, this handily highlights the potential downside of an autonomous vehicle . The city added it will continue operating the buses through Las Vegas' downtown area over the next year.

Both Illumination Entertainment and Nintendo declined comment on this story. Nintendo's creative guru, Shigeru Miyamoto, who created Mario Bros., has been part of the talks and likely will be a producer on the movie, along with [Illumination head] Mr. [Chris] Meledandri, this person said.

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