Nintendo wants to have a hand in creating the animated Super Mario Bros. movie, and it will likely have Super Mario Bros. creator Shigeru Miyamoto on hand as a producer of the film. Yet, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal, Nintendo might be thinking of bringing the red and blue moustachioed plumber and his brother back to Hollywood.
Nintendo and Universal's Illumination Entertainment are reportedly in talks for the development of an animated film based on the Super Mario franchise.
The report mentions that Illumination has been in talks with Nintendo about this project for nearly a year.
Illumination, as you know, is the company behind such animated hits as Despicable Me and Minions, so they've got a strong record in terms of delivering family-friendly hits. Representatives of both companies refused to comment on the story.

Israel has denied the statement about the downed Russian drone
This is in addition to military gatherings, which the Lebanese party Hezbollah established in other posts in Syria. The Israeli military did not provide any immediate evidence that the drone was Russian-made or belonged to Syria.
Illumination, which is owned by Chris Meledandri and Universal Studios, has produced the "Despicable Me", "Minions", and "The Secret Life of Pets" movies.
According to "one person close to the talks", the largest issue in the negotiations has been making Nintendo feel confident that it will be involved in the creative process. Let's face it, Illumination are one of the best animation houses out there at the moment, so they're more than ideal to bring a new Super Mario Brothers movie to the screen.
Nintendo hasn't made deals for movies or TV shows based on any of its marquee characters since 1993's commercially and critically disastrous "Super Mario Brothers" starring Bob Hoskins, John Leguizamo and Dennis Hopper.
