Mass Effect Movie Deal Signed

It looks like there will be a Mass Effect movie on the way after all. Wait a second now there is a twist. This will be an animated film by Bioware in collabiration with FUNimation. Executive producer Casey Hudson shares his enthusiasm for the project.

We have revealed different pieces of the Mass Effect world through different media. Extending the story through an anime medium is another amazing opportunity for us.

However, this project may not follow commander Shepard. Gen Fukunaga, president of FUNimation breaks it down for us.

[FUNimation is exploring] a new chapter to this vast sci-fi world. It is thanks to the enormous and passionate Mass Effect fan base that this movie is made possible.

The film is expected to be released sometime in 2012. In addition, there are also plans for an animated Dragon Age film in the future.
