Mario and Luigi themselves, Chris Pratt and Charlie Day, recently gave an interview to Gizmodo about The Super Mario Bros. Movie. One of the questions they were asked was, if the movie is a success and Nintendo decides to adapt their other games to film, which ones would they want to see? Day said he and Pratt had talked about Metroid, and added, “How interesting and creepy and cool a Metroid [movie] would be?”
Many fans will remember a live-action movie directed by John Woo was in the works for a time, before being cancelled when Nintendo didn’t approve of the intended story. Since then, a few people in Hollywood have said they want to direct or star in a Metroid movie, such as Brie Larson. Maybe if the Mario movie goes down well, the chances of seeing Samus on the big screen will increase!
