For a guy with limited lives, it sure does look like Nintendo's Mario will live forever. There's a new animated Super Mario Bros. movie in the works, from the same people bringing you the latest take on The Grinch. 

You maaay remember the last time someone tried to make a movie based on Mario and his brother Luigi. It did not go well. You could politely call it a disaster: several people did, back in 1993. So this time the filmmakers involved are going to try an approach that's truer to the spirit of the video game, and not, say, a dark and dystopian future. 

If that sounds relevant to your interests, the new Super Mario movie is scheduled for release in 2022. Read more about it here.
