Super Mario Bros. creator Shigeru Miyamoto of Nintendo made the announcement on the company's official Twitter account while mentioning producer Chris Meledandri.

Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic are serving as directors, based off a script by Matthew Fogel.

The plot of the film remains under wraps. Day discussed his experience making the film in January while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

"I know nothing. I show up and they're like, 'You say this and you say that.' And it's all very funny and good and then I walk out and there's like two guys in overalls with hammers that are like, 'Don't you tell nobody nothing about this Charlie. I swear to god we're going to get your kneecaps, we're going to break your neck,'" he joked at the time.
