It looks like Mario fans have something potentially very cool to look forward to…

Yes, it seems that Illumination studios, the company behind Minions and Despicable Me, are making a Super Mario Bros. animated movie in association with Nintendo.

It seems that Illumination and Nintendo have been working on the concept for almost a year withNintendo insisting that have creative control over the movie and Mario creator, Shigeru Miyamoto, acting as a producer.

This is as far as the official news goes for now, but we’ll keep you posted as and when we hear more.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
