Mass Effect gets the movie treatment!

Video Games are moving up in the world... and another big title gets the hollywood treatment!

Mass Effect, Electronic Arts and Bioware's epic Sci-Fi videogame series, has officially gotten its film rights acquired by Legendary Pictures, with a motion picture release primed and ready to be made for the near future! Known for their work in heavy hitting pictures such as The Dark Knight, 300, and Clash Of The Titans, the studio will work to bring Commander Shepard and the crew of the SSV Normandy to the big screen. Producing the film will be Avi and Ari Arad, whose credentials include most of the recent Marvel blockbuster movies to hit the big screen. To top it off, Screenwriter Mark Protosevich, who worked on I Am Legend and the upcoming Thor film, is writing the film's script, so it should be interesting how things go from here. No cast has been announced yet, but details will surely be up in the near future. Hopefully, this successful game franchise, which has spawned two games already, will get the proper motion picture treatment!
