Assassin’s Creed Movie Coming Soon

Ubisoft have partnered with New Regency Productions to work on the planned Assassin’s Creed movie. According to sources, Michael Fassbender is to play the lead in the movie, playing multiple characters across several time periods.

New Regency Productions is the production company behind Man on FireLove & Other Drugs, and the upcoming film  Noah. New Regency also produced next year’s 12 Years a Slave, which stars FassbenderIn a press release, Ubisoft CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet had this to say:

“Bringing aboard New Regency’s renowned production and distribution expertise while maintaining our own creative and financial flexibility ensures that Assassin’s Creed will be a high-quality film that respects the lore and fans of the video game franchise.”

Fassbender being involved shows the film might actually have some potential. You may recognize Fassbender from his roles in Inglorious Basterds, X-Men: First Class, and most recently in Prometheus.  The raising star has been leaving his mark in Hollywood, and will ensure that this adaptation doesn’t end up something akin to Far Cry.
