Assassin's Creed film screenwriter confirmed

The Assassin's Creed film now has a screenwriter as relative Hollywoood unkown Michael Lesslie has been confirmed to write its script.

 

It seems that the Assassin's Creed movie may in actual fact be on its way to becoming a reality. Following last year's reports that leading man Michael Fassbender is set to star and film studio New Regency is partnering up with Ubisoft Motion Pictures to produce the flick, news has emerged that teh Assassin's Creed film now has a screenwriter confirmed. Step forward, British screenwriter and playwright, Michael Lesslie.

'Who?' we hear you ask. Well, to be honest, we'd never heard of him either before now. According to his IMDB page, Michael Lesslie is the scribe behind a couple of film shorts - including 'Skirt' and 'Heavy Metal Drummer' - and the writer of a play that was developed with 'Closer' and 'Dealer's Choice' playwright, Patrick Marber.

While his credits dwarf many of our own, Lesslie's credits don't exactly scream oodles of experience. Mind you, Ubisoft's track-record throughout the arduous process of bringing Assassin's Creed to the screen - including walking away from the studio originally set to produce it - hints that it wants a controlling hand in the proceedings. Could it be that the games publisher feels a young, less experienced screenwriter would be more open to creative direction? Only time will tell..
