Assassin’s Creed movie to star Michael Fassbender

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

Michael Fassbender is set to co-produce and star in Ubisoft’s big screen adaptation of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie through DMC Film.

Back in October Ubisoft was in talks with Sony to develop a series of films based on the successful franchise, however negotiations have since been put on hold. Ubisoft executives will therefore press ahead and develop the film independently in order to maintain a greater degree of creative control.

CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures, Jean-Julien Baronnet, said that the Prometheus and X-Men: First Class actor was ‘our first choice’ for the roll of  the franchise’s signature man in the hood.
