Rumors are coming out of the Sony camp (thanks to the recent hacking) that they are looking at making an animated Super Mario Bros. movie. The fact that Sony is even considering this is a bit strange due to the fact that their PlayStation division is a direct competitor to Nintendo who obviously own the Super Mario Bros. franchise. At very least we can all be glad that they are looking at an animated project and not a sequel to the hugely unsuccessful 1993 live action Super Mario Bros. movie.
If the absurdity of this needs to be pointed out, Sony Pictures is part of Sony, the same company that makes the PlayStation, and which also developers a ton of its own video games. Yet the Buzzfeed report says they "could not find any emails in which anyone at Sony Pictures expressed concern about any conflicts with their video game corporate cousin Sony Computer Entertainment, which is a direct competitor with Nintendo."
