Michael Fassbender to star in film adaptation of Assassin's Creed
Michael Fassbender is set to star and co-produce the film adaptation of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed through is production company, DMC Films.
Fassbender has become a high-profile actor, starring in films such as 300, Fish Tank, Inglorious Bastards, Jane Eyre, X-Men: First Class, A Dangerous Method, Haywire, Prometheus; and has been critically acclaimed for his roles in Hunger and Shame. The Irish-German actor will soon be seen in The Counselor and Twelve Years a Slave and is set to reprise his role as Erik Lenserr/Magneto in the untitled X-Men sequel. Fassbender, along with Conor McCaughan, produced the BAFTA Award winning short film, Pitch Black Heist.
Michael Fassbender's past experience with video games includes voicing the character of Logan in Fable III.
About who would play the franchise's protagonist, CEO of Paris-based Ubisoft Motion Pictures, Jean-Julien Baronnet, says:
According to the Daily Variety, Ubisoft and Sony were in talks of making a series of Assassin's Creed films, but it seems Ubisoft executives have decided to develop the project independently to keep creative control. Sony might still end up distributing the movies.
There is still no word on which assassin the film will follow or when the film is scheduled to release.
Personally, I'd see Michael Fassbender in anything, but it would be a "Shame" if the film didn't live up to expectations. (See what I did there?)
should we expect one every year from now on?
Nah not offended at all. And I think the language is Telegu or Tamil. I'm not too sure, cause I can't read them, but I am sure it isn't Hindi
I hope Oliva Wilde is in it naked!
this will be freaking awesome!
Although I did not ask for it, thank you for providing.
I am able to converse in about 4 languages, Hindi not being one of them. I simply got misled by a Youtube title which stated Bollywood. Apologies were you offened in any way. Which language was spoken there then, might I ask?
he better not be naked in it
There's more hope for this movie I think; because Ubisoft are in control. They made the franchise, they know what to do with it.
Yep, that announcement's making me "hunger" for the movie. Bada dum tish
FYI, that Indian movie ain't Bollywood. I happen to know because I can read Hindi and understand it. The language they spoke in wasn't Hindi. I'm an Indian, so I would know that.
This is a fantastic move. Let's hope there's less dick in it, that wouldn't be a "shame". Ya see what I did THERE?
Another game-based move. Assassin's Creed, of all. Yet if anything, Fassbender is a good addition. Hope the movie's gonna be great. Makes me think of that Bollywood Creed film..Valiyutan or something?
Well, as long as he bones up on his accent. Magneto sounded like he was giving a speech at Croke Park after Kerry winning the All Ireland towards the end of X-men First Class. Fantastic actor though, surprised they were able to get someone of his calibre for a game-based movie, they haven't had the best track record
Make a gay porn parody? Sorry couldnt help myself.
because they are made by third parties
This has little to nothing to do with this post; but how come Game adaptions of Sony movies are never console exclusive? You'd think that'd part of the deal.
I really hope they dont cock this film up
