Report: Mario could get a movie deal from the studio behind Minions and Despicable Me

Of course, Nintendo is nearly laughably protective of their intellectual properties, especially after the disastrous 1993 live action Super Mario Bros. movie.
The companies denied comment on the report Tuesday by the Wall Street Journal. It is the best-selling video game franchise of all time.
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. Still, it's something fans never expected to see, and now that it'll be animated we can all hope for a solid little movie starring Mario and his friends.
The film was a disaster both critically and commercially, and is often cited in discussions about the sad history of Hollywood's various video game adaptations. It would be animated by Illumination's Paris studio Mac Guff and is in the early stages of development, meaning it likely wouldn't come out for several years.

Penn State vs. Rutgers Insider
Worst pass: Rutgers quarterback Giovanni Rescigno overshot Hunter Hayek, who was open deep over the middle in the fourth quarter. He completed 16 passes in 21 attempts for 214 yards and the two scores, while rushing 13 times for 44 yards and one TD.
Of course, this won't be the first Mario movie if it happens.
The deal would give Illumination the option to make multiple Mario movies, but for now the intention is to focus on one feature rather than ambitiously plan out a whole series. It's no surprise that Nintendo is pushing for this because the live-action Mario film that was released in 1993 flopped badly.
Regarding the Mario movie, as of press time, there is no indication that John Leguizamo will be reprising his role as Luigi.
