Although you can usually write off most video game adaptations, 'Assassin's Creed' feels like it could finally break the mold. After all, an acclaimed actor like Michael Fassbender doesn't sign onto any old piece of junk -- there must be something special about this project.
And it looks like it's officially scheduled to arrive in the summer of 2015.
In major news for both the movie and video game worlds, it has been announced via press release that New Regency and Ubisoft are teaming up to develop the film version of the wildly successful 'Assassin's Creed' franchise we heard about a few months back. Michael Fassbender, who has been attached to the project since July, is still on board, but will it be in the lead role?
Gamers will be delighted to hear that the popular Assassin's Creed franchise that follows the elusive killer Desmond Miles is getting some big screen time in a new movie adaptation. If that weren't news enough, Michael Fassbender will be trading in his Magneto helmet for a cloak to star in said film. But the question now is, will he be our Desmond?
