So, most of us know by now that there is a Mass Effect movie in the works. It probably won't have Shepard in it because then it would ruin the choices given in the games. But what if it was a spin-off? What if it included some of Shepard's squadmates? Perhaps our beloved Tali'Zorah vas Normandy, along with maybe even Garrus or Legion? Share your thoughts below.

Actually the movie is going to be based on the first game. It has been tossed back and fourth that it would and wouldn't but it's pretty much solid now that it will. Here is the FAQ from Legendary Pictures' Website.

Thank you to everyone who came out to our pre-production film panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con!  Many of our fans tweeted questions for our panelists that we were unable to answer during the panel - read on for answers to some of the more popular questions.
MASS EFFECT

Will it just be an adaptation of the first game, second game, or a completely new story?

It will focus on Commander Shepard's journey, centering around the story of the original Mass Effect game.
How are you going to address the element of 'choice' that the players have in the game?

The writer is weaving a path through Shepard's decisions that best supports the narrative of the movie and the motivations of its characters.
Will it be a trilogy?

We are really focused on making this a great movie, so we'll see where it takes us.  We have to get the first one right to know whether there will be more.
Will Seth Green portray Joker, the character he voiced in the game?

No casting decisions have been made yet. 
Will the movie be focused on Shepard?

Yes.
If the movie is focused on Shepard, will it be the male Shepard or the female Shepard?

Male.
Can you give any hints to potential casting?

No.  Stay tuned.
Will BioWare allow plot / character changes?

Yes, we are working closely with BioWare on the development of this project.
Would you consider Daft Punk to do the soundtrack?

We love Daft Punk, but it's too early to say who will produce the soundtrack.
PACIFIC RIM
Are you going to be using a lot of practical special effects?

Yes.
Will Guillermo be designing the monsters and robots?

A creative collaboration led by Guillermo will design the monsters and robots.
Will PACIFIC RIM be 'R' Rated?

No.
Will there be any Lovecraftian influence in PACIFIC RIM?

No.
ME3 endings are fake. They were Hallucinations. Real endings coming soon.

Assuming this is correct. That means that we will be seeing Tali in the movie, as it is based on the first game. Do you think that not having Ash Sroka as the voice actor might affect the Tali character in a bad way?

Hmm, I just posted in another thread about this movie  :P I'd be wary of including characters from the game if I made an ME film. Seeing them in the film might not meet the expectations we have of the characters. I'd be very disappointed if Tali was poorly portrayed  :(
Time not spent with Tali is time wasted. ^-^

  • I don't steal things. I liberate them.
That's the problem though. Its a small party vs the world. Hollywood doesn't care for the small party they get more from the world.  They will be shooting for people who don't play the games or know vary little of them. 
 Its like what they did to the transformers movie. If you had nothing to do with them at a young age then you thought it was hot shit. But people like me who did grow up with the transformers cartoon ... well lets just say that I would personalty hunt down Michael Bay and take a shovel to his head.  Almost like bioware but I can forgive them over time.
I am going to stop putting things off starting tomorrow.

Which, assuming the amount of Zeno's, Ashley probably is LI.

To be honest I'd prefer if film Shepard doesn't have a LI, unless it's Tali. But I just don't see it happening.
I'm Commander Shepard, and Tali'Zorah is my favourite girl in the galaxy.

I'll third this.  Tali or death.  Or at least loneliness.
I don't care what Tali looks like.  Her true beauty is in her spirit and personality, and those can't be locked behind a mask.

If Tali isn't in it, I'll be mad. If she is in it and doesn't live up to my expectations. which are high, I'll be mad.

If Ash Sroka doesn't voice Tali, I'll be mad. And she better be friggin' cute.

Assumimg that this movie probably won't get a stellar budget, I think they'll try to cut down on alien characters being up close to the camera. I'd say there's a chance for alien squadmembers not being in the movie at all. Or a chance for their parts to be reduced in scope to a couple of scenes. It is a 2-hour long plot after all. Not much room for detail.

Tali is with helmet and with suit... It would not be difficult to just put Ash Sroka in it... We all do not know how does she look like( the photo is good, but still not that good, so we do not know how she looks like ). But I think that the film will probably be good, maybe even awesome. We will see. Prepaire molotovs if not.

You gotta think bigger my friend.  Molotov's are nice but Napalm is exquisite
Garrus: Do you ever miss those talks we had on the elevators?
 
Tali: No.
 
Garrus: Come on. Remember how we’d always ask you about live on the Flotilla? It was an opportunity to share.
 
Tali: This conversation is over.
 
Garrus: Tell me again about your immune system.
 
Tali: I have a shotgun.
 
Garrus: Mmm, maybe we’ll talk later…

We are not as well funded from nowhere like Cerberus is, so Molotovs will fit, they have to.

The price of petrol? I don't think I can stretch to Molotovs. Strongly worded letters are more my way.

this is sadly the most likely outcome.

No...I remember a Tali's bum thread though.......but I digress.

Theres a good chance of this but if it happens I would think it would be Krogan, Hanar, Elcor etc that get cut simply because they didn't have much to do with the first game except add variety to the alien species (with the exception of Wrex) and they would be the most costly to put in.  Garrus would be costly to but because he is a more popular squadmate and has appeared in every game I believe he will be in the movie.  Same with Tali.  She also has the benefit of being an actress in a costume instead of CGI like Garrus would presumably have to be so cost wouldn't be an issue
