COMING SOON: ASSASSIN’S CREED: THE MOVIE. (2016)
Will this upcoming film breathe new life to these type of video game adaptions? Many past game adaptations have struggled to be a major breakthrough success at the box office for this genre of film. Movie makers are anxious to see if gamers and action-loving-movie-goers will unite, revel about the release and find themselves entertained by the upcoming big-screen release of the Assassin’s Creed Movie. This movie will feature an original story and characters, rather than directly adapting the game’s storyline.
Assassin’s Creed is the first movie to be produced by Ubisoft Motion Pictures, the vibrant new film branch of Ubisoft, in collaboration with Regency Pictures. UMP CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet has also confirmed that the film adaptation will not be a direct adaptation of any of the games. The new Assassin’s Creed film will take place in Spain and focus on the infamous Inquisition led by Tomas de Torquemada.
There have been a few delays with the film, pushing the date back from the former date in May 2016 to the new Official date in December of 2016. Assassin’s Creed will star Michael Fassbender(X-Men:Days of Future Past) in the lead role as Callum Lynch. Also cast in the film are Marion Cotillard(Inception), Ariane Labed(Before Midnight), and Michael Kenneth Williams(Boardwalk Empire). Assassin’s Creed will be directed by Justin Kurzel(Snowtown).
