Michael Fassbender to star in Assassin's Creed movie?

Fighting against the notion that games can't be films, Ubisoft is apparently looking at Michael Fassbender to prove them wrong with Assassin's Creed

 

According to Variety Michael Fassbender has been signed up to play the lead role in the much-awaited Assassin's Creed film which is looking to be distributed by Sony Pictures.

Jean Julian-Baronnet CEO of Ubisoft Pictures spoke to Variety saying "Michael Fassbender was our first choice" to play the franchise's iconic hooded hero" apparently confirming that the actor would not only be in the lead spot but would also co-produce the film.

The Assassin's Creed film has long been anticipated however it's believed that Ubisoft was concerned that they would lose creative control of the project resulting in a finished product which wouldn't truly represent the current franchise.

To deal with this Ubisoft have created their own film studios Ubisoft Pictures which will directly work with a distributor to make the film whilst still retaining complete control over their creation.

Assassin's Creed is by far and away their biggest franchise and with the next installment Assassin's Creed 3 boasting not only bigger environments but even better graphics all eyes will be on Ubisoft to see how the film shapes up.
