That's according to the Wall Street Journal, which reports that Nintendo is in talks with Illumination Entertainment, a subsidiary of Universal Studios responsible for movies like Despicable Me, The Secret Life of Pets, and Minions.
Nintendo has already been in talks with Sony to produce the film, but Universal's Illumination studio is no doubt a more logical fit, given that the corporation is already in production on a Super Mario theme park.
We'll keep you updated about the potential Super Mario Bros. animated movie as more information arrives. Polygon has reached out to both Nintendo and Illumination for comment. Shigeru Miyamoto, Nintendo's creative fellow and creator of the original Mario Bros. will reportedly serve as a producer on the film. Video games have not had a good run in recent times - if ever, either - but if anyone can make it work, it's definitely Illumination.

We can't wait to know what's more in the store for baby Taimur with Children's Day gift already being this grand. Aww.now imagine Safi driving this cherry coloured SRT with Kareena and Taimur enjoying the flawless family ride.
If Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainments will join hands and sign a deal with Nintendo then this can be next biggest animated movie and they will surely take the deal to a peak.
Super Mario Bros. has previously been adapted as an anime movie, an anime miniseries, several American cartoons, and a live-action movie.
We've seen reports along these lines before, but there certainly seem to be reasonable odds of this actually happening; it'll be fascinating to see if the deal gets over the line.
