Mass Effect Movie Coming?
Well, Comic-Con has come and gone and along with the teaser trailers for “The Dark Knight Rises” and “The Amazing Spiderman” and the first official trailer for next year’s superhero team up movie, “The Avengers” being released, there was some interesting news at first time Comic-Con presenters Legendary Pictures concerning something that could validate my earlier post about video game movie adaptations. Apparently, Legendary is currently in works with BioWare to make a Mass Effect movie in the not so distant future. Legendary acknowledged that video game movies sucked and reassured that they are working close with BioWare to make sure that they make the best video game adaptation ever. They had no concept art or footage to show to prove what they are working on at the panel but we shall see in the future. Apparently, in 2006, former editor in chief of Marvel and movie producer, Avi Arad, bought the rights for a Mass Effect movie long before the first game even came out, so he must have seen something in the early workings of the game.
