Variety reported this morning that Michael Fassbender has been cast to star and produce the upcoming movie adaptation of the successful Assassin’s Creed video game series.
Variety’s plot summary of the movie:
Plot revolves around a man who learns his ancestors were trained assassins after he is kidnapped by a secret org with ties to the Knights Templar, and sent back in time to retrieve historical artifacts.
Fans of the game aren’t sure what assassin from the series he’ll play or if he’ll just be playing the modern day Desmond. It’s also possible that studios could pull a Resident Evil and create an entirely new character to base the movie around.
