That's according to a new Wall Street Journal report, which claims both Nintendo and Universal are close to signing on the dotted line. It will be based on the 32-year-old Super Mario Bros series, about a plumber and his pals saving the Mushroom Kingdom from Bowser and the evil Koopas.

Illumination Entertainment is a well known animation studio, best known for their mid-budget, charming animated films that manage to make money off their high concepts.

Illumination's Mac Guff studio in Paris who has been responsible for the Despicable Me series of films has commenced development on the film with the release date unconfirmed.

According to industry heads, Illumination has been in talks with Nintendo for over a year.

Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto is said to have been playing a key part in the negotiations and could serve as a producer on any eventual film. Their enthusiasm waned around the same time that the Super Mario Bros. movie bombed at the box office.

Open the door, get on the floor: Talks about an animated Super Mario Bros movie are reportedly getting very serious.

What do you think of this possibility? The only plans Nintendo and Illumination Pictures have at this time are for the one Mario movie.

The WSJ go on to say that a Nintendo spokesman declined to comment, as did an Illumination spokeswoman, but we're more than excited at the prospect.
