This pictures has hit waves, the highly anticipated adaption of the acclaimed video game (I could never really get into it, then again I wasn’t really trying) Assassin’s Creed has gained many of news since Fassbender came on board, most notably because of the film’s ever changing release date which has moved I believe three times since it was first announced, which were due to various rewrites on the films script and inconsistent of the directing choices.
Well we finally have a good look as to what Fassbender will look like and I gotta say–
He looks pretty sweet. Also that came with this picture is a rough plot premises:
“Fassbender’s character was created specifically for the film. (The movie isn’t retelling any of the existing games, but rather introducing new characters into the same world.) Lynch discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society through unlocked genetic memories that allow him to relive the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. After gaining incredible knowledge and skills he’s poised to take on the oppressive Knights Templar in the present day.”- Yahoo Movies
I’m not an expert on the game but I can’t imagine this going well with the hardcore fans, but I’m interested. Colour me excited.
Assassin’s Creed will be directed by Justin Kurzel (Macbeth) with Marion Cotillard, Kenneth Williams and Ariane Labed will all star along side Michael Fassbender. The film is set for a release in December 21st, 2016.
