Mass Effect Movie coming!

Post by TheSold3y »

I am very happy to tell you that there will be a Mass Effect movie made by Legenday Pictures! I know there has been a lot of speculation amongst the fans ever since Mass Effect 1 came out as to whether or not there would be a movie, who should star in it, who would direct, would there be a Wrex sized actor, etc and I can now tell you, yes, there will be a movie! Legendary Pictures, the studio behind great films such as The Dark Knight, Watchmen, The Hangover and 300 have picked up the rights to make Mass Effect. Legendary Pictures will produce with Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni along with Avi Arad (who has been behind great films like Iron Man, X-Men and Spider-Man). From BioWare Ray Muzyka, Greg Zeschuck and Casey Hudson will serve as executive producers.

I'm more excited about Sam Raimi's upcoming World of Warcraft movie.

I´m interested in that, too. But It will be a lot of work to make The Warcraft Universe into a good movie. I don't think they will be able to put it all into one movie. (Trillogy maybe?)

Oh Lord....
Almost every video game movie sucks hard. Tomb Raider and Prince of Persia are exeptions, but they're still not great. Games and Movies don't go along well. Movie-games suck and Game-movies suck aswell. I'd rather like to see a new original IP than something like a Mass Effect, WoW or Uncharted movie...

Well Mass Effect is something different in my opinion. Mass Effect has one of the best storys ever and the deepest charachts any Video game ever had (Correct me if you find exceptions). But of course I think they can't make just one Movie for the first Mass Effect movie because there is so much you have to show the audiences as a director. It will be hard but it will be possible.

@ The Mass Effect Fans: Which Actors you would suggest for Commander Shepard (male) ... Joker , Ashley etc.? ;)


PS: I think Commander Shepard will be a male one.

(World of) Warcraft has an awesome story, there is a lot of good stuff for dozens of movies.

Just because the games have great stories it doesn't mean that the movie will turn out great. Remember, the people that work on the movies are COMPLETELY different people than those that work on the games. As I said, in 99% of all cases a video-game movie turns out to be completely and utterly shitty.

True.
I didn't say it was good. It's just one of the better video-game based movies. If you ever saw Mortal Kombat or Streetfighter you know what true suckage is...

True that, but the story is one of the most important parts of a good movie, if the writers got such an awesome story which has a lot of potential it is already a good start. That does not mean the movie has to be good, but at least it is better than starting with a bad story. And Sam Raimi has already done a few good movies.

Well a good story script means nothing if the actual movie makers butcher it. I mean it could be possible that the Wow, Mass Effect or Uncharted movie will turn out decent or even good, but I won't keep too high hopes (such as Soldy :roll: ).
