The Assassin’s Creed movie will begin production this fall, Michael Fassbender has confirmed.
The actor who has previously worked in movies like X-Men: First Class and Prometheus, will be co-producing and starring in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed film. He will be working alongside Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard.
Fassbender, however, did not reveal any more information about the movie. It’s still unsure as to what roles he and Cotillard will be undertaking. When asked by ComingSoon.net whether the speculations of him playing Assassin’s Creed character Desmond Miles are true, he opted to remain quiet. As he did for other questions relating to what timeline the movie will be following, or on which game it will be based on.
The Assassin’s Creed movie is currently scheduled to hit theaters on December 21, 2016. It wouldn’t be a surprise though, if we saw it being pushed into early 2017. The team behind this project have been taking its time, and which is good. Movies based on games seldom come out right. In fact, I haven’t found any worthwhile mentionable except for the first Mortal Kombat film.
The Assassin’s Creed franchise holds great value for Ubisoft. A successful movie adaptation will just be another feather in the company’s cap.
