Mass Effect Movie Gets A New Writer

The Mass Effect movie, which we all know is never actually going to be made, has just added a new screenwriter. Morgan Davis Foehl, who previously worked as an editor for FX’s Rescue Me and for I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry has been hired to rewrite the script turned in by Mark Protosevich, who wrote I Am Legend, even though the script will never be turned into a movie.

Foehl was chosen after the Mass Effect film’s producers, who still labor under the delusion that this film will ever see the light of day, read some of Foehl’s earlier scripts and liked his emphasis on espionage. Foehl also made a name for himself with a script that ended up on the famous Blacklist (the annula list of awesome scripts no one has purchased.) He’ll begin work on the never to be seen film shortly. The film still does not have a production start date, a cast, or a projected release date, because it’s never going to be made.

I get the impression that you think there is a small probability that this film wont get made?

Makes you wonder, should strange things happen and it is indeed made, how it will the film end, and will Casey Hudson be involved in the final choice(s).

I really hope this doesn’t happen.

I’ve never understood why taking a game and turning into a movie has ever made people excited.

You want to sit and passively watch someone act out something you already actively did.

I’d still watch it, it could be interesting to see how they would create the alien species, especially the asari and turian.
But something like this requires a huge budget, so I’m just as optimistic as Ross.

I was hoping for Mel Brooks.

Okay I’m backing Roy on this.

If the Mass Effect movie turns into something as Golden as SpaceBalls then all bad decisions at BioWare should automatically be forgiven.
