Mass Effect 3

We really haven't heard a lot about the Mass Effect movie lately.  Comic-Con 2011 brought a lot of hype about the movie, but since then, things have been sort of quiet. Today there's news: There is a Mass Effect movie script. According to an article on Deadline, Mark Protosevich, who wrote Thor, I Am Legend and The Cell, has written a Mass Effect script for Legendary Pictures.

According to the FAQ posted by Legendary, the Mass Effect film will "focus on Commander Shepard's journey, centering around the story of the original Mass Effect game." It will feature male Sheppard. Other than that, no decisions had been made regarding casting or really much else, it seems.

Interestingly, Legendary's plan for the Mass Effect movie seems to have been changed since it was originally announced. Way back in September, Legendary said the Mass Effect movie's plot would not be based on the games, and would tell "a completely new story."  The company also said that Seth Green would not play Joker in the film version, but since then, the company seems to have backpedaled a bit, and now say "No casting decisions have been made yet."

My question: Do you, as a gamer, actually care about the Mass Effect movie? Given Hollywood's abysmal track record with video game adaptations, I'm perfectly content to have Commander Sheppard stay out of the local multiplex. But maybe I'm in the minority here.
