That's according to the Wall Street Journal, which reports that Nintendo is in talks with Illumination Entertainment, a subsidiary of Universal Studios responsible for movies like Despicable Me, The Secret Life of Pets, and Minions. The talks between Illumination and Nintendo have reportedly been taking place for over a year, which makes sense given the history this franchise has with Hollywood.
It seems that the two parties are close to finalizing a deal, but there has been no indication that they have reached an agreement as of yet. It's also been rumored that they've collaborated on projects in the past that didn't necessarily come to fruition.

Nintendo's now taking steps to make Mario's friendly face more recognizable outside his games, but this is the first we've heard about a movie in quite some time.
Of course, Nintendo is nearly laughably protective of their intellectual properties, especially after the disastrous 1993 live action Super Mario Bros. movie.
