Michael Fassbender To Star In ASSASSIN’S CREED Adaptation

Michael Fassbender will headline an adaptation of the Assassin’s Creed video game series.

If the film follows the games, Fassbender will be playing bartender Desmond Miles, a descendent of a line of assassins and who is forcibly regressed through his past lives by Abstergo Industries to find information on the locations of several powerful artifacts that they wish to acquire. The games each take place during various historical conflicts, but there is no word as to whether the movie will stick to one time period or have the Desmond character traveling to multiple ones.

Ubisoft will be producing the film in partnership with financers New Regency.

Fassbender is pretty much the first creative signed to the project. It has no attached director or screenwriter. But Obisoft wants to have the film in front of cameras by next summer so they’ll have to lock down those positions fairly quickly.
