    There's always a lot of "attention" to making a movie from a video game, but nothing really comes of them. Unless you count shitty movies like Street Fighter. The Halo movie is practically dead and there won't be a Metal Gear Solid movie. Mass Effect is pretty popular, but there are much bigger franchises out there to have movies be made.

    I've never played the ME games, but how's the story?
    If it's good, there's always potential for a movie based on it, but it all depends on if they mess it up or not.

    Where rockets don't fall.
    Most of the time turning a video game into a movie tends to fail.
    If this is made I hope they don't make elevator(s) scenes...

    Mass Effect should stay as a game. Not a Movie period.

    Agreed. Time Hollywood comes up with something more original.
