Nintendo confirmed today that the company is working on a live-action Legend of Zelda movie in partnership with Arad Productions. The film will be directed by Wes Ball, with Shigeru Miyamoto and Avi Arad acting as producers.
This is Miyamoto. I have been working on the live-action film of The Legend of Zelda for many years now with Avi Arad-san, who has produced many mega hit films. 
I have asked Avi-san to produce this film with me, and we have now officially started the development of the film with Nintendo itself heavily involved in the production. It will take time until its completion, but I hope you look forward to seeing it. 
Neither the Twitter account nor the Nintendo site post provide any further details on whether the movie will follow one of the games’ plots or be an original adaptation. Arad Productions and Avi Arad were involved with the 2022 Uncharted movie. Wes Ball directed the Maze Runner series. Nintendo most recently released a Super Mario Bros. movie in partnership with Illumination and Universal Pictures, which went on to gross $1.6 billion worldwide.
