In completely unsurprising news, Legendary Pictures has confirmed that yes, the Mass Effect movie will be all about Commander Shepard. It’s also (unfortunately) confirmed that the character in the starring role will be John, and not our beloved FemShep. That aside, it’s still good to have some news about the film adaptation, right?

In a world where Doom, Dungeon Siege, Far Cry, Postal, and Mortal Kombat were morphed into movies, it’s refreshing to see a videogame-to-film adaptation that finally makes sense. Congratulations, Legendary Pictures. In addition to probably having a multi-million dollar film franchise on your hands, you’ve won our cautious optimism.
We’re sure that you’re absolutely thrilled.

Legendary Pictures has announced its intention to start internally developing videogames based on its original and existing properties.
First one on the list will be based on The Lost Patrol, a supernatural thriller expected to arrive at theaters in 2010, along with the game tie-in.
Activision and EA alumna Kathy Vrabeck will head the division and, according to this Variety piece, she already has plans for mobile and casual internet portals.
Currently, Legendary are adapting Gears of War and World of Warcraft into feature films.

Update: Epic says no comment on this.
Right purchasee – wrong purchaser. According to a report by Variety, there’s a “For Sale” sign in Epic’s window after all. However, it’s not EA that’s trying to wrangle a deal; it’s film financier Legendary Pictures.
Legendary Pictures, who’s previously thrown its considerable weight behind films like The Dark Knight and Superman Returns, is currently assisting Epic in the development of a Gears of War movie. Bringing Cliffy and co. under its umbrella, then, seems like a plausible next step.
Variety cites “multiple sources close to both companies,” who say that talks are already under way. Company execs, on the other hand, refuse to comment.
Considering where the report originates, though, we’d say this is a fairly safe bet. Of course, talks like this fall through all the time, so we may never even see an official announcement.
Either way, as long as we get Gears 2, we think we’ll make it.

The upcoming Gears of War film got a boost today from Legendary Pictures, who said it would co-fund and co-produce the project with Warner Bros.
New Line had previously dated the movie as a summer 2009 release, but since it was folded into Warner no date’s been forthcoming.
The Gears of War film has been set up at New Line since early last year with Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey producing.
The game’s dev boss, Cliff Bleszinski, is exec producing and consulting for Epic, which owns the rights.
