The lights are on
The upcoming Assassin's Creed movie will star Michael Fassbender, who most notably played Magneto in X-Men: First Class and David in Prometheus.
"Michael Fassbender was our first choice to play the franchise's iconic hooded hero," Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures told Variety in an interview. "Michael is an extremely smart, talented, versatile and committed actor."
Fassbender, who will also co-produce the film, recently had roles in Haywire and Shame. The report says Ubisoft will develop the film internally but could still distribute it through Sony.

I see a few broken limbs
Michael Fassbender? I'm now interested in this film.
Not enough detail about what his role(s) is. But I'm guessing one of them is Desmond.
I think the games to movies idea is great, however, too many film makers stray from the storyline to make what they think, is a more exciting movie. Its happened before and probaly always will. Would be nice to see them stick to the story or come up with a completly new one. So many films made from books get all messed up and skip important parts. Hope Ubisoft sticks to the storyline or makes a new one. Love the series and would hate to see it damaged by a poor choice in the film.
lets hope for the best .. you know how game movies tend to be.. altho pop was good and thats ubi too
I approve, sounds like this one is going to be done right.
Great, I'm looking forward to this flick. I think the in depth narrative involved with the series means that the movie shouldn't stray to far to the events in the game.
wait.....there's gonna be an Assassin's Creed Movie?!?!?!
And this guy is a really good pick. Never saw Prometheus, but i thought he was really good in X-Men.
A Fable voice moves to Ubisoft. Interesting call.
Ok Good Draft pick Ubisoft... seems the fear of this movie turning into a street fighter(starring jean claude) debacle is dimmering with this news.. this guy is very smart he doesnt pick bad scripts or screenplays.. meticulous decision maker.. Ubisoft is up to something GOOD, Precise, and the level of attention to detail has to be close to examining the Hope Diamond for a crack..
This Film Could be The biggest video game movie of all time..
(as if a light shined thru the darkness of hollywood, an assasin will save this movie genre) one can only hope.
