Unconfirmed: Mass Effect Movie Rights Purchased

The Cut Scene reports that Avi Arad – founder of Marvel Studios (Spider-Man, Blade, X-Men, Fantastic Four, etc. etc.) – has purchased the film rights for Mass Effect.

“Mass Effect” has started its journey to the big screen. Numerous sources have confirmed that producer Avi Arad has optioned the rights to Bioware’s sci-fi RPG from the developer’s parent publisher Electronic Arts.

Turning “Mass Effect” into a movie, or at least trying to do so, is pretty much a no-brainer. Even those who didn’t love it would have to admit that it has a lot more meat to its narrative than most games. You’ve got a hard-ass protagonist, a crusty bureaucracy trying to hold him back, a motley supporting cast, a hugely diverse (if a bit similar looking) bunch of settings, and an alien invasion fueled by technology that nobody but our hero fully understands.
