Mass Effect Writer Drew Karpyshyn Rumored To Write Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic Movie

Body

5800 We can add another rumor to the list for new Star Wars movies this time with the writer of the popular Mass Effect video games, Drew Karpyshyn.

AICN says they received a lengthy e-mail which stated that Drew Karpyshyn has written a script for a film adaptation of Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic.

As gamers will note, Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic was a role-playing video game developed by BioWare, maker of the Mass Effect franchise.

Obviously, we can put two and two together and we see the rumor looks to becoming from developers at BioWare.

AICN did some digging and found out that Drew Karpyshyn left BioWare last February to work on screenwriting, but reportedly Karpyshyn's website says he recently completed his first script and is looking for an agent to sell it.

It's also said that there are a lot of ideas being thrown around Disney regarding new Star Wars movies, so the Knights of the Old Republic could just be someone's dream project.

In addition to writing Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2, Drew Karpyshyn worked on Jade Empire and Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Previous rumors from AICN regarding Star Wars have in part been true as they let it be known that the spin-offs would be standalone movies and focused on specific characters.

Star Wars Episode VII has a 2015 release date directed by J.J. Abrams.
