Legendary Pictures has picked up the rights to the BioWare game series. I Am Legend and Thor screenwriter Mark Protosevich has been assigned to write.
THR says that Avi and Ari Arad will produce with Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni from Legendary. The project is early in development; Warner Bros. would co-finance and distribute worldwide.
The Mass Effect setting has the potential for several great movies. The game unfolded an interesting interstellar setting. A setting that inspired not only a second game but also many books.
If you were to write a Mass Effect Movie what storyline would you tell?
Would the movie be a disservice to the fans if they were to just pick a storyline from the games and tell that in the movies?
Should they pick one of the novels and turn it into a move?
Or would you continue the setting and tell a new story from within the setting Mass Effect games?
