Legendary Pictures teases Mass Effect movie at Comic-Con


12:45 PM on 07.07.2011




Legendary Pictures has revealed the line-up for their Comc-Con panel this year and lo and behold, they have listed their Mass Effect film! Legendary had previously announced they acquired the rights to the franchise's silver screen incarnation on May 24, with the studio's Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni producing the film alongside Ari Arad -- not to be confused with franchise-ruining Avi Arad (Spider-Man 3, X-Men: The Last Stand) who optioned the rights in 2008.

On the panel will be BioWare's Casey Hudson and screenwriter Mark Protosevich. You may know Protosevich from his writing credit on movies like Cell, Poseidon, I Am Legend, and the upcoming Jurassic Park IV. Thankfully he also worked on the story for Thor, so that's at least one decent movie under his belt.

No details on the plot yet, but one would assume Comic-Con would provide at least some information about the project. I'm going to wildly assume it will involve Reapers, Protheans, Mass Relays, and an intricate sci-fi noir story about Commander Shepard's corrupt practices while doing PR on the Citadel.

What's Up: ME4's Mako, Deadpool test footage, Gal Gadot as Xena

Monday is the worst day of the week, so Bill and I are coping with it by drinking blueberry smoothies and talking about wonderful things like superhero nonsense from Comic-Con, Mass Effect's exciting new (old) sharkmobile, Trine 2's awful poetry, Destiny's two unoriginal races, and True Detective, which Bill doesn't like, and therefore isn't allowed to have blueberry smoothies anymore.more

BioWare sent out a mysterious teaser trailer for its new horror IP. The trailer implies surreal psychological terrors, but the identity of this game is even more of a mystery. EA's trademark activity points to the name "Shadow Realms," but the channel hosting the video and the website for the game are called "You've Been Chosen."more
