BioWare parent company Electronic Arts said Monday that Legendary Pictures acquired the theatrical feature film rights to the Mass Effect science-fiction series. Warner Bros. will distribute the movie worldwide under a co-production and co-financing agreement with Legendary.
Legendary also co-produced The Dark Knight, 300, Clash of the Titans, The Hangover and Watchmen.
EA said that the movie's producers are in talks with I Am Legend and Thor screenwriter Mark Protosevich to draft a screenplay for the movie.
Producing the Mass Effect film are Legendary's Thomas Tull -- the founder of the now-defunct video game company Brash Entertainment -- and Jon Jashni, along with Avi and Ari Arad. Serving as executive producers on the film are BioWare heads Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk and Mass Effect executive producer Casey Hudson.
