The long-silent Mass Effect movie project will get an outing at Comic Con. Schwing.

Gamefront reports Legendary Pictures, the production company behind Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Where the Wild Things Are, and a metric shit ton of other excellent films, has released its Comic Con schedule.

A Mass Effect: The Movie panel is scheduled for July 22, featuring scriptwriter Mark Protosevich and BioWare’s Casey Hudson.

Hudson, along with BioWare founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, serve as executive producers on the project.

EA announced the movie deal with Legendary last year, but we haven’t heard much about it since then. Comic Con looks like our first opportunity to see how it’s shaping up.

The San Diego Comic Con runs from July 21 to 24.

A second Mass Effect adaptation, an anime feature, is due in 2012.
