Mass Effect movie in development
With so many games making it to the big screen (at least are said to be), such as Heavy Rain, Shadow of the Colossus, Tekken, and some that i probably just forgot about, i can now add another game to that list, this time its Mass Effect.
The Mass Effect movie will be produced by Legendary Pictures, and some of the people who will work on the title will be Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, Avi Arad and Ari Arad. BioWare ‘s co-founders Ray Muzyka, Greg Zeschuk and executive producer Casey Hudson will also serve a roll in the development of the movie as executive producers.
“‘Mass Effect’ is a tremendous property ripe for translation to the big screen … a prime example of the kind of source material we at Legendary like to develop; it has depth, compelling characters and an engaging back story.” said Thomas Tull, chairman and CEO of Legendary.
Casey Hudson also said that Mass Effect the movie will be “an extraordinary entertainment event that realizes our vision for the franchise and thrills fans.”
Legendary Pictures are currently in talks with Mark Protosevich, writer of I Am Legend and Thor, in order to draft the screenplay.
