Movie man buys Mass Effect rights

Could BioWare's RPG make it in Hollywood?

A top Hollywood producer has snapped up the rights to turn Mass Effect into a movie.

His name is Avi Arad and he's quite a big deal actually, having previously produced films such as Spider-Man, Iron Man, Blade, X-Men and Fantastic Four.

Now, according to Variety, Arad has turned his attentions to BioWare's sci-fi RPG.

It's very early days so there's no word whatsoever on a release date or any possible casting options. Who would you like to see playing Commander Shephard, readers? We vote for Bruce Boxleitner or Claudia Christian, obviously.
