Screenwriter Evan Daugherty (Snow White and the Huntsman) is reportedly collaborating with Polaris to pen and direct a series called “The Four Players”, retelling the story of Super Mario Bros. Movieweb.com reports that the series will make way for gritty short films to hit the small screen, it seems even Mario Bros. will get the “hardcore” treatment….really?
Right, “The Four Players” includes “The Fixer,” focusing on Mario, “The Addict” (Luigi), “The Star” (Princess Peach), and “The Soldier” (Toad). “The Fixer” and “The Addict” made their debut on Thursday November 18, while “The Star” and “The Soldier” aired on November 19.
“Making these short films gave me a chance to really ‘do my own thing,’ while having a little fun treating one of my favorite video game properties with a darker vibe,”
“I had been kicking around the idea for years before I was even working in the industry, so to finally be able to share these films with fans on Polaris is a very exciting thing.”
“The Fixer” and The Addict” has landed on the internet for your viewing pleasure.
