    Due the recent Sony Hack, the gift that keeps on giving, many developments and projects by Sony Pictures have been leaked to the public. Things like Disney and Sony in talks about Spider-Man joining the MCU, the latest Bond film going over budget, and more are making rounds on the Internet. One piece that is especially of interest are e-mails between various Sony Pictures execs and Nintendo execs discussing a possible Super Mario Bros. animated film being produced by Sony Pictures.

    Granted, this doesn't mean the film is a for sure thing. It currently still lacks a green-lighted script among other things. Can't say it wouldn't be interesting though. Especially with Sony of all people spearheading it.

    (Assuming this is true and not a hoax)


    Nintendo and Sony working together? Its just plain weird as it kinda makes no sense. Why not use an animation company not affiliated with your competitors like Disney (who did the awesome wreck it Ralph) or DreamWorks?

    I'm really not sure if a Mario movie was ever a good idea. All he does is jump around, really. Eventually reaches Bowser and saves princess. How could you make a full movie about that?
    Then again, Battleship happened and IIRC there was a Tetris movie announced at some point, so pretty much anything can be turned into a movie.

    Really liked Wreck It Ralph and they definitely should have Sonic around this time too, even if it's a cameo only.

    That was literally my thought, hahahah!

    It's sad that too many people here will look at this and think, "What the fuck is that?!"

    One thing to remember is the ralph director did once say he'd wanted Mario in the original but couldn't use him due to costs and stated he'd love him in da sequel.

    I forgot
    Some Nintendo history for you, Sony and Nintendo were originally going to release a console together back in the pre-N64/PS1 days. It wasn't until Nintendo decided "nah fuck your ideas Sony" that they split and started the whole "console feud" garbage. So it's not all that far-fetched.

    As for the news, meh. It'll just be another shit game movie like all the rest so even if this were true I wouldn't be looking forward to it much.

    Nintendo was sought out and approached by Avi Arad since he's a big Mario fan. So I guess he still knowingly pursued Nintendo regardless of the competition with SCE.
