I can't say that I play video games enough to be considered a "gamer" but I do know that my favorite games over the past decade have been been from the ongoing war between the Assassins and Templars in the Assassin's creed franchise.
I can say I do follow movies enough to consider myself a cinnephile and there is no doubt that the story behind [Assassin's Creed](tag:437814) was made for the big screen! I'm cautiously optimistic for this film, mainly because Hollywood is notorious for butchering video game movies for a quick buck, However with the hiring of Michael Fassbender as the main protagonist to play a charcter named Callum Lynch and adding Academy Award winning actress Marion Cotillard as a so far un-named character tells me that they are serious about making this a quality film
That was further confirmed by the impressive leaked set photos below:
Assassin's Creed is set for release in 2016!
