A big screen adaptation of hit RPG series Mass Effect is in the works at Legendary Pictures.

BioWare bosses Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk will work as executive producers on the film, along with Casey Hudson - who executively produced the games. There's no script just yet but Mark Protosevich, who wrote I Am Legend and Thor, is in talks to produce one.

Legendary Pictures' previous offerings include 300, The Dark Night, The Hangover and Watchmen. The company will work with Warner Bros. to co-finance and distribute the Mass Effect movie.

There's no word on when the film will be out or who will play Commander Shepard. We vote for Bruce Boxleitner obviously.
