The video game is set in the year 2183, centering on a space commander leading an elite team on a mission to destroy a deadly alien race. These mechanized aliens wipe out everything in the galaxy once every 50,000 years. We reported last September that the movie will not follow the video game's exact story. The latest installment of the video game series, Mass Effect 3, sold over 1.5 million copies in its first week of release back in March, earning more than $200 million since its debut.
Morgan Davis Foehl previously served as an assistant editor on the FX series Rescue Me and on the Adam Sandler comedy I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. His screenplay Whatever Gets You Through The Night landed on the Black List in 2009.
