The Legendary Pictures film based on BioWare's Mass Effect will star a male Commander Shephard, and tell a "completely new story" from the RPG series.
Actor Seth Green, who voiced Jeff 'Joker' Moreau, won't be reprising his role. They have to get the "first one right" to know if there's room for more instalments.
It's of little surprise that the movie studio wanted to go with a male Shephard - that's just Hollywood. No feisty looking, ginger female Alliance Commander to save the galaxy then. "We are really focused on making this a great movie," said a Comic-Con panel.
"We have to get the first one right to know whether there will be more." Legendary is working closely with developer BioWare to hammer out this Mass Effect film, and there are no hints towards who will be cast, except that Seth Green won't be Normandy's pilot.
BioWare big cheeses Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka are executive producers. Who do you think could fill the Systems Alliance boots for Commander Shephard? Surely Legendary Pictures will go with the big bad Reapers, won't they?
