1. Assassin's Creed
According to Variety back in 2011, Ubisoft was rumoured to be in the final stages of a deal to turn the open world adventure game into a film and since then the French games publisher has created its own film studios Ubisoft Pictures to make it happen. Working directly with a distributor to make sure they don’t lose creative control and the film doesn't end up panned like most of video game adaptations, Prometheus actor Michael Fassbender is in line to play the lead role of Altaïr and has had previous video game experience having done voice acting work for Fable III back in 2010.
Release date: TBA
Next Deus Ex: Human Revolution
T3 rounds up ten video games set to be made into Hollywood movies that could be heading to a cinema near you...

From the films 'in production' to the directors and screenwriters passing around the scripts, we've picked out ten exciting video game to movie flicks that still hope to make it into your local Odeon.
