Assassin's Creed Movie is Confirmed and guess who's the lead? Hey Guys, How's it going? Welcome back to Clevver Games!
So, a few weeks ago I was speculating that Ubisoft was going to make an Assassin's Creed movie after they leaked details of owning websites related to the movie title. Today, Ubisoft confirmed the movie and it's going to be starring Prometheus lead and X-Men hottie Michael Fassbender.
Variety confirmed Fassbender will lend his talents as an actor and producer to the upcoming big screen adaptation of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed series. Fassbender will produce through his DMC Film label alongside the newly established Ubisoft Motion Pictures group.
Also, it seems the movie is tipping it's hat in the direction of the first game's story- In that game, as Variety states "the Plot revolves around a man who learns his ancestors were trained assassins after he is kidnapped by a secret org with ties to the Knights Templar, and sent back in time to retrieve historical artifacts."
Ubisoft is planning to develop the film independently in order to hang onto creative control, with plans to seek out a studio for marketing and distribution help only after work is completed on the film. There's no release date yet- but I'm sure it's a few years out.
I'm stoked that Magneto is going to be heading up this new Assassin's Creed film. I feel it gives the film a good bit of geek relevance. I'm a huge X-Men fan and Assassin's Creed fan- so this is def a match made in heaven. Do you agree? Who else do you want to see in the film? Leave me a comment, I want to know.
