Legendary Pictures is moving forward with it's adaptation of hit video game Mass Effect.

Legendary Pictures has had the rights to extremly popular Xbox Franchise MASS EFFECT since 2009, Back then Mark Protosevich (THOR) took the first swing at a script. Now Legendary has hired another writer, Morgan Davis Foehl who had worked as an editor on CLICK and I KNOW PRONOUNCE YOU CHUCK AND LARRY. Most recently Foehl found himself on the 2009 Hollywood Blacklist which is a list of the best unproduced scripts in Hollywood. Foehl will take a shot at the script and obviously Legendary want’s to get this done considering the popularity of MASS EFFECT 3

Foehl’s script WHATEVER GETS YOU THROUGH THE NIGHT remains unsigned, but to give you an example of how important it is for some writers to find there way onto “The Blacklist” here are a few movies that were made from blacklisted scripts.
