Remember when Sony Pictures was hacked and details emerged that they were planning a Mario movie? Well Shigeru Miyamoto has played down those rumours by stating that he regularly gets pitches about a Super Mario Bros movie from numerous companies and it’s nothing unusual. He also said that he doesn’t have a “vision that the next iteration of “Mario” is going to be in film.”
I heard something about that this morning. What’s interesting is that over the past 20 years, people come to us on a fairly regular basis about creating “Mario” movies. There are times that those ideas end right when they bring them to us, and other times we’ll listen to presentations. It’s not very unusual, and it’s something we’ve been doing for a very long time. I don’t particularly have a vision that the next iteration of “Mario” is going to be in film.
