Nintendo is in talks to bring Mario back to Hollywood, according to a report today by the Wall Street Journal.

Only one film is now planned according to sources close to the talks.

Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of the iconic game series is involved in the development of the film.

In Super Mario Odyssey Nintendo introduces players to Cappy, an anthropomorphic hat that lets ex-plumber Mario control enemies and objects by throwing it in their general direction.


A deal could potentially lead to sequels, but at the moment just one film is planned.

Illumination, which made "Despicable Me", "Minions" and "The Secret Life of Pets", has been talking to Nintendo for more than a year about the movie, according to the people who know about the recent talks.

If the deal goes through, it will mark the first major feature-length film for Nintendo since the 1993 live-action movie, which starred Bob Hoskins, John Leguizamo and Dennis Hopper, outside of the ongoing Pokémon franchise. As shown in the video below, user NichtSascha takes control of a Piranha Plant in Luncheon Kingdom while player two moves Cappy above the creature and performs a ground pound.
