The lights are on
Momentum continues to make Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed film inevitable. The motion picture wing of the video game publisher has just announced a deal with film production company New Regency.
Michael Fassbender has already signed on as the lead for the movie, and Ubisoft says that work is beginning on the screenplay.
No release date/timeframe for the film has been officially announced.

Why is everyone assuming the story is going to be a known one? There's an entire AC Universe out there that's been heavily alluded to, but never shown.
Ooh yes! I'm so pumped for next week!
eventually there will be a great video game turned movie. heres hoping this takes a mighty swing at it.
I'll believe this movie is being made on the day it premieres. Seems like lots of video game movies never work out for one reason or another. I wouldn't be averse to an Assassin's Creed movie, though, and I think Fassbender would make a pretty good assassin. I hope it works out!
Fassbender! Keep making good things
huge Assassin's Creed fan, so I'll watch it even if things take a turn for the worst
Is is sad that I had almost forgotten that they are creating this movie? I guess since ACIII will be released in a few days, I have put this on the back burner. But now since it seems they are moving along with production and my excitement (and caution) is rising. I can see Michael Fassbender being a great portrayer of an assassin, but I am scared that the movie will do the Franchie little justice. After all it happens all the time with book to movie, and comic to movie transitions.
Doubt it will come out. A lot of movies based on games get delayed until they finally get canceled.
this makes me so happy, I hope this does well so we can put the critics to shame.
Interesting. I hope that if it comes out, it will not be a joke. Too many times Hollywood has screwed up a book or game or comic. Hopefully that won't happen.
As impressive as the franchise's story is, I'm having a hard time figuring out how they'll adapt it to a movie. Guess that's why I'm not a screenwriter.
A series begging for a movie to join it's list of entries.
wow. I have such high hopes for this game. They've taken the right steps so far
I'd see it. And the Uncharted movie needs to happen as well.
hope it happens. this can be a great movie if they do it right. Exactly like the game
good actor and hope its way better than Prince of Persia...
This sounds like it will the first good video game movie.
