A few hours ago MTV spoke with BioWare's Casey Hudson, their project director on the most recent Mass Effect game. Casey wasn't shy about teasing talk of turning his franchise into a movie.
already flop this movie..
like the super mario bros movie: http://www.gamesetwatch.com...
Because the story of two Italian plumbers trying to save a princess had any chance of being good. If any game has a chance of becoming a good movie, that game would be Mass Effect but I don't expect you to understand why.
The Game it self is a movie have you even played ME? hell im a Sony Fanboy and i think this game is great.
Oh hai doom. xD Well hopefully we can see one good game movie.
This movie has the potential to be amazing, especially with all the back story and settings they created for it. But if history has taught us anything, it's that despite the potential of so many game franchises, the movies ALWAYS suck ba!!s
Yep. A lot of games have potential, but Hollywood just dumbs them down to mindless action flicks. And that wouldn't be so terrible if they were at least interesting half the time.
Agreed with Tony, I can see a lot of games making good movies if they actually tried.
Bioware should only allow this IF a major studio and proven director are interested in bringing the series to films. Otherwise it is wasted potential doomed to fail.
*cough Cameron Cough* Seriously if he can do Avatar Effects with the story for the game it can be amazing.
looks like you have the same idea as me. if cameron could pull an avatar with a mass effect movie, it would be brilliant. oh, and there should be more blue people too. maybe even cast sam worthington as shepard.
Cameron could be a good choice. Some others off the top of my head that fit the bill would be Neill Blomkamp, J.J. Abrams (although it would probably be too close to Star Trek for his liking), or Ridley Scott.
The Mass Effect movie IS happening, just play the game, hehe.
No thanks, we don't need a another nerdy star trek movie.
and a god of was movie, with sweaty men would be less lame??? You're a gamer, you are a nerd, accept it.
Mass Effect is already a movie. Going to a theater is like watching someone else play. I'll pass.
Hmmm probably one of the only video games I think can potentially make a great movie. They created an amazing amount of background story and depth to the game. The universe is actually fleshed out enough that a movie might not suck.
and i suppose they'll go with the male shpard for the movie. shame because i think a female shepard would follow well in the tradition of heroines from sci fi movies and tv. ripley, scully, sarah conner and buffy to name a few. but heck, i'll see it anyway if somebody makes it.
