Super Marios Bros. Movie Script Archive - posted by Don

Super Mario Bros. – multiple script by Multile Writers – hosted by: Super Mario Bros. The Movie Archive – in pdf format

In case you’re curious about what went wrong with the Super Mario Bros movie, you want to see how it could be adapted, or you just want to see a good idea go bad, check out Super Mario Bros. The Movie Archive script collection, which has PDFs of all the versions that came out in the early 90’s. There’s:

  • The fantasy version, written in 1991, a comedic fairy story, a Princess Bride style adventure, and
  • The 1992 pitch & script for a sci-fi based version of Mario Bros, what the film became, heavily inspired by Ghostbusters, and
  • The two darker versions, after the directors brought in Dick Clement & Ian la Frenais (this is the version that reportedly attracted Bob Hoskins and the other stars) with Mad Max visions of the future, and
  • The softer more romantic rewrite. The producers had this done after they panicked about the darker version. Rewritten by Ed Solomon (Bill & Ted) and Ryan Rowe (Charlie’s Angels), and finally,
  • The final “Rainbow” version after the directors brought back the original writers, a mix of voices.

Thanks to “John” for the info!
