Fassbender Leading Assassins Creed Movie

by February 24, 2015 0 comments

It has been confirmed that X-Men’s Michael Fassbender will be the lead in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie. Game titan, Ubisoft, is in the works with New Regency (Producers of Gone Girl, 12 Years a Slave and Birdman), to make a feature film of their trademark series.

Ubisoft’s CEO, Yves Guiellmot stated, “We have the pleasure to announce today that the green light has been given by New Regency, and the production has already started.”

Fassbender will be accompanied by Oscar winner and Dark Knight Rises star Marion Cotillard. This cast has definitely shined a positive light on this project; Ubisoft is trying to change the idea of video game movies (Super Mario Bros.) by bringing in some of the heaviest hitters in the industry. This will be the second feature the company has produced; the first being Prince of Persia, and there’s been word that a Splinter Cell movie in production.

The specifics of the movie haven’t been released, it’s going to be interesting to see how the movie is adapted. Will it be straight crossover from the video game or will this be a stand alone story altogether? It’s well known that most Assassin’s Creed fans could go without the present day storyline; all of the enjoyable content stems from venturing into the past as a lethal assassin.

With the amount of talent fueling this creation, I see this production being one of two things: a killer blockbuster that will span sequel after sequel or a flaming turd that will stain all of their careers. I obviously hope this movie will be amazing, but only time will tell. The movie is set to release December 21st, 2016.
