It was recently just announced that the Assassin’s Creed movie adaptation has found their lead star.
That star is none other than…
Mr. Fassbender is the acclaimed actor from such movies as Inglorious Bastards, Shame, X-Men: First Class, and more recently, Prometheus.
It was stated that last year Sony and Ubisoft, the company who makes the Assassin’s Creed games, were in negotiations for several Assassin’s Creed movies. Ubisoft’s film department would make the films independently so they have full control over the entire project.
That may be a sigh of relief for some fans of the series.
Now that the ball is rolling, and Michael Fassbender is on board, aside from staring as the lead he is also co-producing the picture.
No word yet though on who Fassbender will play, whether it be Desmond or Altiar.
This film is in a very early stages of production, seeing as how there isn’t even a director yet, but maybe it will be the saving grace in the whole video-game-movies-suck category.
Only time will tell.
