Mass Effect movie “going to be really special”, says Hudson

Monday, 25th March 2013 00:55 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Just a little blip out of BioWare’s PAX East panel: Mass Effect series executive producer Casey Hudson made a brief mention of the upcoming Legendary Pictures film adaptation.

“That hopefully should be seen as a good thing, because what we’re looking at are, I think, the right things to make sure it’s gong to be a great movie,” Hudson said, as reported by Kotaku.

“It’s not just going to be a movie; it’s going to be really special,” he said.

The adaptation will focus on the male version of Shepard and be written by a fan.

It’s the first mention of the project since October last year. An anime spin-off, Paragon Lost, has released in the interim.

    Please, Reapers, don’t let them screw this unpolluted series. Anyway, if Legendary is in, it can’t be bad at all. It would be great to have someone like Zack Snyder directing it.

    What about Dominic Purcell? He might be a little too meat headed for it – and I mean in that his head looks rather muscular…

    Yvonne Strahovski is obviously Miranda.
    Doug Jones as Mordin.
    Lance Henriksen obvious Hackett.
    Karl Urban as Kaidan?
    Jennifer Lawrence as Liara?

    @5 Actually I wouldn’t mind Karl Urban,but as Shepard though.

    If it was based on the game I’d vote heavily for Justin Bieber to play Jenkins :-)

    @6, As much as I like Karl Urban, I’m not sure I could see him as Shep. I think he is usually great as a supporting actor but can be a bit… iffy, as the lead. Although he was good in Dredd, but then again he didn’t really need to say much.

    What about Eric Bana getting thrown into the mix? For some reason I think he would fit somewhere in this.

    Rico Rodriguez will be chosen to play the god-child!

    There will be kershplody bits, some nudy bits, a terribly plot full of holes and a cliffhanger ending that may or may not be spliced from an entirely different movie. Calling it now.

    Matthew fox from Lost should play Shepard. He looks just like him , plus he’s a great actor.

Tali is whoever since we won’t be seeing her face haha. OMG This would be the best movie if they do indeed have those casts! good choice!

    I generally get very excited when favourite stories from other media become a movie, then generally get disappointed… I will watch the movie though and hope for the best.

    My favourite novel, Odd Thomas is now filmed, but stuck in limbo over a law suit and I may never see it, that’s really upsetting. Especially because the law suit is not involving Dean Koontz, it’s just between the studio and a ^%^%ing marketing firm. It’s unrelated to the topic at hand, but I saw an opportunity to share my pain and took it.
