Assassin’s Creed Movie announced, Fassbender in the lead

Posted By | On 09th, Jul. 2012

Michael Fassbender will be the lead and co-producer of the new Assassin’s Creed movie which will be released sometime later next year. Assassin’s Creed is Ubisoft’s big selling video game IP, and while there have been plenty of rumors of a movie being  in the works, it’s nice to see something like this actually going through.

“Michael Fassbender was our first choice” to play the franchise’s iconic hooded hero. He is an extremely smart, talented, versatile and committed actor,” said Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of Paris-based Ubisoft Motion Pictures.

Considering it’s Ubisoft Motion Pictures, the executives at the company may have rejected Sony’s offer to produce a film to maintain more creative control, but they could still be distributing the film in the end since Ubisoft wants to limit its investment. UMP was launched last year so that Ubisoft could expand its business to films as well.
