In a recent episode with The Hot Mic podcast, film critic Jeff Sneider revealed that he’s heard rumors of Universal Pictures picking up the Nintendo title. “I’m told that Universal is, in fact, closing a ‘big deal’ with the Nintendo corporation for The Legend of Zelda,” he said. “Zelda is looking like the next big Illumination-Nintendo franchise, which we were all sort of expecting. I’m told that is happening.”
Furthermore, he noted that Universal will be spending a “pretty penny” on the creation of the Zelda adaptation as The Super Mario Bros. Movie managed to gross $1 billion USD worldwide and make history as the highest-grossing video game movie adaptation.
