Following on from Super Smash Bros, Assassin’s Creed is the next game to move across to the big screen.
A lot of game-to-movie crossovers a total rubbish. Just look at Super Mario. But Hopefully this will be one of the few good ones.
Michael Fassbender is taking the lead, both acting in the film as well as producing it, and he recently spoke in an interview about why it’s been so long in the pipeline:
You say it’s a long time but what I’ve found–it’s all new to me but starting to develop scripts and work on them, they take time.
It just takes time to get a good story together and we really want to do it right. It’s exciting. It’s going to start this year, we’ll be filming in September.
No other information has been announced yet, but the fact that the wheels are in motion is cool. I’ve always thought the fanchise had great movie potential, and Fassbender is a great actor, so hopefully, it’s going to be a good one!
