Nearly two years ago, fans of Assassin’s Creed were excited to learn that Ubisoft Entertainment announced a theatrical adaptation of the popular video game series. In that time, we’ve learned English playwright Michael Lesslie is penning the screenplay, and that Michael Fassbender is attached for the lead. He’ll play Desmond Miles, the descendant of a long line of assassins who can relive the memories of his ancestors.
While no director has been hired onto Assassin’s Creed as of yet, a release date has just been announced. 20th Century Fox projects Memorial Day weekend 2015, taking the date of May 22.
So, there you have it fans – an Assassin’s Creed movie in just two years time. How do you feel about that?
Video game adaptation don’t have the best tracked record, but there’s no reason why this film should suck, when the concept and source material is so good. That, and being Ubisoft Entertainment will be heavily involved in in the films development. This has the potential to be amazing!
