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

In one of the highest profile licensing deals made by a Hollywood studio in decades, Illumination Entertainment have nearly sealed the deal make the animated movie. Universal Studios is planning on opening a sizeable Nintendo-themed section of their theme parks sometime in the next few years.

The Super Mario Brothers series has shifted over 330 million units total for Ninitendo in the years since it first landed on consoles in the 1980s, so it's no surprise that a new film is in the offing.

The report notes that Illumination Entertainment, and Universal Pictures by default, could develop this into a multi-film franchise, akin to the Fast and Furious or Despicable Me (both are owned by Universal Pictures) universes. There's yet to be any official word from Nintendo or Illumination on the deal: Neither side is answering questions. Mario creator and video game guru Shigeru Miyamoto has been a part of these talks with Illumination, and will likely be a producer for the film.

Mario and Luigi have appeared on the big screen before, in a 1994 live-action film starring Bob Hoskins. You may recall that Nintendo used to be much more active in terms of allowing outside companies to produce films and series based on their properties. The aforementioned Super Mario Bros., released in 1993, was a critical and commercial failure, although it did leave us with a truly magical cinematic moment.
