Hey guys! So it is now official! The Assassin's Creed movie is now under production and is given a release date of 21 December,2016! Well Assassin's Creed lovers would definitely understand what I am going through now! YAY!
Well Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed today that the film is in production. He said-
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.
Well I know that many people like me are very excited but this excitement is going to spread when some uninformed people will know that rumors say that the lead of the movie will be played by Michael Fassbender! And being a pretty hardcore Assassin's Creed fan I definitely think that Fassbender is the right choice!
Justin Kurzel (The Turning) is set to direct this historical fiction movie. Which is rumored to take place during the Spanish Inquisition, which would make it the first time the franchise has visited the era. It is still not confirmed whether the story will be focused on Altair or his (video game series) successor Ezio, but if the Spanish Inquisition rumor is to be believed the movie will be focused on Ezio.
Anyways, I am really excited for this movie and I really hope that Michael Fassbender should play the lead!
