EXODUS Writers Hired To Pen Screenplay For ASSASSIN'S CREED Starring Michael Fassbender
Ridley Scott's biblical epic Exodus is one of this year's most highly anticipated movies, and writers Adam Cooper and Bill Colage have now been drafted in to rewrite the existing draft of the big screen adaptation of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed. A perfect fit, wouldn't you say?
Like Splinter Cell (which recently picked up a director in the form of Doug Liman and will star Tom Hardy), Assassin's Creed is a high priority project in Hollywood as Ubisoft attempt to capitalize on the popularity of their video games by making movies based on them which are actually, you know, watchable. According to Deadline, Ubisoft have now hired Adam Cooper and Bill Collage to rewrite the movie which will see X-Men: Days of Future Past star Michael Fassbender take on a lead role. The duo were responsible for the original draft of Exodus, and have also written The General for Noah helmer Darren Aronofsky. They have a number of other projects in the works, but the fact that they are now attached to this one - which, if it follows the story of the original game is set during The Third Crusade - should come as very welcome news to anxious fans.
