Assassin’s Creed the movie is due to start filming in September and the adaptation stars Michael Fassbender along with Marion Cotillard. It will be directed by Justin Kurzel who has already worked with the pair on this year’s Macbeth.
Previously rumoured to be starring as Desmond Miles, Fassbender – who is also taking on producer roles for the film – has been very secretive on setting and storyline. In an interview with IGN he said
“We’re working very hard to make sure that we’ve got the best and most exciting, original package.”
Given that the poster is covered in the distinct lines of the Animus, it’s clear that the past and present division will play a more prominent roll than in the games. Hopefully something more will be announced during this years E3. Current official release date is listed for December 21st next year.
