The Assassin’s Creed movie is now officially in production. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot announced earlier today.
“We have the pleasure to announce today that the green light has been given by New Regency, and the production has already started. This is a very important milestone for the project and for our team on Assassin’s Creed.”
Ubisoft Motion Pictures announced its partnership with New Regency and distributor 20th Century Fox way back in October 2012. Having so many rumors of this Assassins Creed movie generated over the past years has only kept us wanting an official confirmation of the project, which we finally received today.
Guillemot confirmed that the movie is slated for a December 21, 2016 release. Michael Fassbender is confirmed to play the lead role with Justin Kurzel on board to direct. The two has collaborated on Macbeth in the past. Fassbender has said that the upcoming Assassin’s Creed film will be respectful of the game. Furthermore, it will be visionary according to Fassbender.
“We also want to bring new elements to it and perhaps our own vision of things that already exist in the game.”
