New Regency is in talks with Justin Kurzel (Snowtown) to direct Michael Fassbender in the upcoming film Assassin’s Creed. Kurzel and Fassbender are currently wrapping up production on the adaptation Macbeth that will release in 2015.
It was announced earlier this month that Exodus: Gods and Kings writers Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, will handle the film’s rewrites. Deadline reports that Ubisoft is moving quickly with the film and other project, Splinter Cell.
Assassin's Creed follows the story of Desmond Miles, a bartender that accesses the memories of Assassins from historical times through a device called the Animus. Michael Fassbender will star and produce.
20th Century Fox plans to release Assassin's Creed August 7, 2014.
