The film adaptation of Mass Effect has been announced as having a new writer. The previous script, written by Mark Protosevich — the writer behind Thor and I Am Legend — apparently did not meet with approval from the movie’s very Mass Effect-centric executives, including Bioware founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, and Mass Effect lead Casey Hudson.
The new writer, Morgan Davis Foehl, has yet to see one of his projects make it to the big screen, but previous efforts Whatever Gets You Through The Night and the upcoming Crosshair have garnered a lot of praise. That he is a huge Mass Effect fan certainly went a ways to pleasing the execs, but also his previous offerings have all been action-oriented, which is obviously what the team is looking for.
