Max Landis, known for writing on the Chronicle film, recently released a musing of a script for a concept Super Mario World movie that he wrote when he was 18. Even by his own admission, he says the script ‘sucks’. And it does. But of course there are moments that you can imagine cinematically. But one of the reasons it sucks is well, the script is over 400 pages. Only if we had written this blog post sooner, we could have warned Landis about the pit falls of writing these sort of game-films.
