Super Mario Bros. was turned into a live-action movie once. Gamers under a certain age are lucky enough to be spared the atrocities committed throughout the film’s running time, but if anyone in the L.A. area really wants to see it again, your day has come.

Hollywood A-listers Billy Bob Thornton and Dennis Hopper are to voice the scorpion and spider roles in THQ Wii exclusive, Deadly Creatures.
“What surprised me about Deadly Creatures is how it looks… like watching a movie,” said Billy Bob Thornton. “The scorpion and tarantula are like two actors meeting up for a gun fight.”
“Gamers are really going to love Deadly Creatures,” added Dennis Hopper.

Dennis Hopper’s explained away his involvement in the dreadful Super Mario Bros. movie by saying he needed the movie to buy his son shoes.
Speaking on the Late Night with Conan O’Brien show, the actor said:
“I made a picture called Super Mario Bros., and my six-year-old son at the time — he’s now 18 — he said, ‘Dad, I think you’re probably a pretty good actor, but why did you play that terrible guy King Koopa in Super Mario Bros.?’ and I said, ‘Well Henry, I did that so you could have shoes,’ and he said, ‘Dad, I don’t need shoes that badly.’”
Man’s got to eat. Thanks, 1UP.
