‘Super Mario Movie’ in the Works

The Universal-backed studio, Illumination Entertainment, which has produced animated films like  ‘Despicable Me,’ ‘Minions,’ and ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ is in talks with Nintendo to make an animated ‘Super Mario Bros.’ movie based on the 32 year old video game.

The film is in the early stage of development and probably won’t be in theatres for several years, according to the ‘Wall Street Journal’.

Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto will be one of the film’s producers along with Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri.
