Sony Gearing Up To Make A Super Mario Bros Movie

My Nintendo News

Well it’s certainly started out being a weird news day as Sony Pictures is apparently making an animated movie based on the Super Mario Bros franchise. The news was discovered after Sony Pictures was recently hacked and the data was poured onto the internet. The Super Mario Bros movie is very early in development and may never see the light of day, but let’s hope it does.

“I am the proud father of mario the animated film [sic],” producer Avi Arad told Sony studio chief Amy Pascal in an email dated Oct. 23, 2014, with the subject line “Mario.” Arad then forwarded Pascal separate images of him with Mario Bros.creator Shigeru Miyamoto and Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata, the latter of which included the message, “Happy ceo, lets get together, it’s the mother load. [sic]

Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
