We have seen a whole host of video games being adapted for the big screen over the years but, while there have been a handful of fairly successful adaptations, the majority of the video game to movie projects have been flops. One of the next video games that we will see adapted for the big screen is Assassin's Creed and things are moving ever closer to production.
We have known for some time now that British actor Michael Fassbender will play the lead role in the Assassin's Creed movie and now we are on the verge of learning who will direct the film. It has been reported that Justin Kurzel is in talks to direct the Assassin's Creed film, which would see him re-teaming with Fassbender who he worked with on the upcoming Macbeth movie.
While we do not really know a great deal about the Assassin's Creed movie, the film has been described as "A bartender is captured by a large corporation and is forced into a machine, named 'The Animus', allowing him to relive the memories of his ancestors -- Most of whom are Assassins -- to retrieve powerful and dangerous artifacts."
In another twist of fate, the latest rewrite of the Assassin's Creed screenplay has been penned by Michael Lesslie, who also wrote the screenplay for the Macbeth movie. As well as starring in the lead role for Assassin's Creed, Michael Fassbender will also produce to movie. Assassin's Creed is currently expected to open on August 6, 2015 in the UK and August 7, 2015 in the US.
Are you looking forward to seeing the Assassin's Creed movie?
