Mass Effect movie based on “a completely new story”

We haven’t exactly been swimming in details as far as the mysterious Mass Effect movie is concerned. Legendary Pictures’ website has thrown a few drops of water our way though. Just a few.

First off, the flick will focus on the doings of male Commander Shepard, as we all probably expected. Second, Normandy pilot Joker will not be played by the character’s voice actor Seth Green; the two don’t exactly look alike. And finally and most substantially, the movie will not follow any storylines from the games. Instead, what we’ll see on the big screen will be “a completely new story.”

What could go wrong?
