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.

This awesome Fassbender is a terrific actor.
i hope this does not turn out like resident evil.... having 200 movies all ending the same way!!
good pick, think he's a phenomenal actor...
Great. I think he should play ezio. He reminds me of him the most.
A great choice. I might actually see it now.
Great actor and I think he will do good, but will he play Desmond as well. Also what about Lucy and Warren vidic.
Great Actor! Good start to making a respectable film.
This is looking good. Video game movies tend to be terrible, but maybe with high production quality, a good script, and excellent actors like Fassbender ( I haven't seen him do any bad acting yet), we might just see something to make gamers proud. Maybe if the movie was good enough, a well known film critic will eat his words about video games being art.
Excellent choice, but an Assassin's Creed movie? I don't know.
I saw Prometheus recently and his character was by far the best acted one in the whole movie. I hope he brings that kind of performance to this.
Who knows, there's gotta be a videogame inspired movie that does well at some point....
Amazing. The Fass = greatest who's ever lived, and ever will.
Not gonna lie, that dude is sexy.
I think he was a good pick!
I could see him as an ancestor, but not as the lightly Brooklyn-accented Desmond.
A great actor to act in a movie of a great game
I saw Shame a about a month ago. Great movie and Michael Fassbender's performance was very good as well. I wonder if he will be playing Desmond or whichever assassin ancestor they choose for the film. I hope they come up with a whole new assassin.
I hope this isnt as horrible as the Super Mario Bros. movie. Loved Micheal in Prometheus.
