The problem is that the charm of Zelda isn't really in its story but rather in its aesthetics and game play. I don't think Zelda is fit for such a linear platform.

You never know. If done right, it could be amazing. Probably why I'd only trust Studio Ghibli to do it.

there's already a zelda manga iirc, so they would just need to make an adaptation.

It would be interesting to see, but I think all the things people enjoy most about that series would be lost in the transition between mediums. Link is actually an extraordinarily flat character, and intentionally so since he's supposed to be the player insert. Trying to make a film about a character who never talks and borders on having no personality whatsoever sounds like a doomed project, because if you give him a personality you risk upsetting the purists (who are the people most interested in seeing this happen in the first place). If you don't give him a personality to satisfy the purists, meanwhile, you'll bore a general audience to tears with your main protagonist.
