Fassbender in Assassin’s Creed movie
Michael Fassbender is set to produce and star in a movie based on Ubisoft’s fan favourite Assassin’s Creed.
According to Digital Spy, the film will follow a bartender who learns of his true family tree, that he is a descendant of famous assassins, and all this after being kidnapped by the Knights Templar during the Crusades and Renaissance period. As you do…
Shame star Fassbender will co-produce the movie project with his DMC Film partner Conor McCaughan and Ubisoft Motion Pictures, reports Variety. “Michael Fassbender was our first choice,” said UMP CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet. “Michael is an extremely smart, talented, versatile and committed actor.”
Assassin’s Creed is no stranger to film production as Sony were originally set to produce the film. Such projects were put on hold and will now be developed independently by UMP. “We’re open to re-discuss with the key studios once the production package is finalised,” Baronnet said. “Whatever the financial model, UMP will limit its risk investment.”
