Six months after the American release of Super Paper Mario, American film director, producer, and screenwriter Seth Gordon, who's most recent works include the Pixels movie, had interest adapting a movie based on Super Paper Mario. Gordon was quoted saying, "I'd love, really love, to adapt Super Paper Mario into a movie, a movie that would constantly switch from 2D to 3D. In five years, 3D cinema is going to be really big." Gordon however specified that he never had the chance to speak with Nintendo about his envisioned project, so his idea was eventually forgotten.
