Marion Cotillard will star alongside X-Men: Days of Future Past star, Michael Fassbender, in the live-action version of Assassin’s Creed.

Cotillard’s role is being kept under wraps but, much like Fassbender's contract, it is expected to span over several films, should the film become a multi-picture franchise like 20th Century Fox hopes it to be.

Justin Kurzel will direct the film, based on Ubi-Soft's popular video game series which released it's first game way back in 2007, now onto it's eighth game with many add-ons available and has sold over 91 million units, now available on all the major gaming consoles.

Assassin's Creed will also act as a reunion for Cotillard, Michael Fassbender and director Justin Kurzel, who all worked together on Macbeth, which will be released sometime in 2015 by The Weinstein Company.

Cotillard has also starred in La Vie en Rose, Big Fish, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises.

Funnily enough, Cotillard's Inception and The Dark Knight Rises co-star, Tom Hardy, will star in another of Ubi-Soft's gaming franchises turned movie, Splinter Cell, which will be released this year.

Assassin’s Creed will begin production this fall and will be released in cinemas on December 21st, 2016.
