Super Mario Bros movie coming from Minion studio, report says
Could Mario become as popular a movie character as the Minions from "Despicable Me"?
On Tuesday, The Wall Street Journal reported the mustachioed video-game character and his brother Luigi could soon star in an animated movie from Illumination Entertainment, which brought the world the little yellow Minions.
The bros aren't strangers to the big screen. Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo starred in the 1993 live-action movie, "Super Mario Bros," which was critically panned. According to Metacritic, Hoskins called the film "the worst thing I ever did."
