ASSASSIN'S CREED Movie Adaptation Gets A Writer

With Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class) attached to star and produce, New Regency and Ubisoft have hired British writer Michael Lesslie (Prince Of Denmark) to pen the screenplay for their upcoming Assassin's Creed adaptation. We also have a first logline for the movie.



According to The Hollywood Reporter, up-and-coming screenwriter Michael Lesslie (who previously wrote Prince Of Denmark and a number of short films, including Skirt) has signed on to work on the script for New Regency and Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed movie. Prometheus and X-Men: First Class actor Michael Fassbender will star in and produce the film adaptation of Ubisoft's top-selling video game franchise. Ubisoft Motion Pictures is developing Assassin's Creed closely with New Regency, and the two are also partnering on a Splinter Cell adaptation (which has The Dark Knight Rises' Tom Hardy attached to star). Assassin's Creed "centers on a bartender who is captured by a secret corporation and sent back in time to relive the memories of his ancestors -- all of them assassins -- and retrieve ancient artifacts." Despite previous comments suggesting a late 2014 release date, New Regency and Ubisoft hope to have the film in theaters before the end of 2013. A director and cast should be locked down in the near future. Stay tuned to CBM for more news on Assassin's Creed.
