The epic Xbox 360 title Mass Effect is on its way to becoming an adapted screenplay, as Legenday Pictures has just acquired the motion picture rights to the Bioware-developed video game.
Mass Effect became one of the best-selling games on the Xbox 360 when it was released in 2008. Its riveting storyline compelled players to press on through its dozens of hours of gameplay.

The deal brings to mind the series of Resident Evil movies, which have seen successful sales even if the critics find nothing good to say about them. Hopefully Legendary, which has produced such films as The Dark Night and 300, will work a bit harder to make the Mass Effect movie a cinematic gem in its own right.

The man who is reportedly tasked with scripting the movie is Mark Protosevich, a science fiction writer who created the screenplay for I Am Legend.

Bioware will have a significant overview in the production of the film, with studio owners serving as executive producers on the movie.

The early credit list shows that Mass Effect may be a genuinely compelling flick, but I'll have to wait to see who signs onto the cast before I decide if I want to shell out the cash to see a video game movie in the theaters, something I've never done before.
