FAN CAST: Assassin's Creed by JoshW

FAN CAST: <font color= blue>Assassin's Creed</font> by JoshW

Here are my choices for who I'd like to see star in a movie adaptation of the video game! Included are my picks for all of the game's main characters ranging from Altaïr to Desmond Miles as well as all the info you need to know about them and the game!

JoshW: Although I would’ve loved to have made this cast as accurate as possible to the game (in regards to the characters who hail from Jerusalem) the fact is I don’t know any actors of that race and in all honestly I cant see Hollywood ever doing that anyway...just look at the upcoming Prince of Persia movie! I have instead picked the actors who I think fit these characters best and have made sure to give any of you who haven’t played the game all the info you need to know what you can expect from a movie adaptation! Enjoy! :)

The game tells two stories simultaneously. One is that of a young assassin named Altaïr, a master assassin for an organization called the Hashshashin during the Crusades during the late 12th century. The other is about one of Altaïr's descendants; a bartender named Desmond Miles living in 2012.

Miles is kidnapped by a huge corporate conglomerate known as Abstergo Industries. They need to access secrets held in his genetic memory -- specifically certain aspects of his ancestor Altaïr's life. Altaïr’s story begins with him trying to retrieve "The Piece of Eden", a mythical object that can hypnotize the masses with mind control.

As the game progresses Altaïr finds that the men he was ordered to kill are all connected through the Templars, and Desmond finds out that his captors are the modern day Templars searching for “The Piece of Eden” in order to take over the world.

A highly skilled assassin during the Third Crusade, Altaïr is the unruly protagonist in Assassin's Creed. Though he may come as a cold hearted and ruthless assassin, he is really fighting for what is right and just, and trying to find the truth that lies behind the world around him.

His American accent may be laughable but I have to give credit to Worthington…he’s a good actor. He looks right for this role and I can easily see him pulling off the quiet, brooding intensity of this character.

He is the Brotherhood's leader. He gives Altaïr the task of eliminating nine Templar leaders. After Altaïr kills all of them, it's revealed that Al Mualim is also a member of the Templars.

I know he’s a popular choice for this role with fans of the game and I can see why! He's perfect for a role like this and although he may be getting on in years I dont think he'd have any trouble pulling off a character like this!

Malik is a harsh, yet wise Assassin who dislikes Altaïr due to his skill and rank in the guild. At first, his devotion to Al Mualim is unbreakable and undeniable, yet he slowly gains respect for Altaïr as he changes on his quest to redeem himself.

Sisto is a brilliant actor who in my opinion would be really well suited to this role. His past roles in shows like Six Feet Under has shown that he can play a diverse type of character - perfect for someone like Malik who changes over the course of the game.

Maria Thorpe was an English woman who impersonated one of Altaïr's assassination targets. Maria was abandoned by the Knights Templar, and forced to find asylum with her enemies, the Assassins. She later fell in love with Altaïr.

Although she’s not British, I still think that she’s a good choice for this role. A likeable and talented actress, this may not be a big part but in my opinion she looks perfect for the role and would do a great job.

Robert de Sable was a lieutenant for Richard the Lionheart and Grand Master of the Knights Templar during the Third Crusade.

Although the game features 9 assassination targets, I think it would be far more sensible for a movie to focus on one of these and who better than Altair’s greatest enemy? Vosloo has a great track record of playing villains and in my opinion, is perfect for this role.

Desmond was to be raised as an assassin. He is a descendant of Altaïr and was captured by scientists for Abstergo Industries for the Animus project, a machine that extracts a person's genetic memories regarding their ancestors from their DNA.

I’m sure he’ll be busy playing Captain America over the next few years but I’m sure he could find time to play this character! Not only does he clearly look the part but he has the right sort of acting background to perfectly translate the character from the videogame to the big screen.

Warren is the main antagonist of Assassins Creed and the enemy of Desmond Miles. He is an employee of Abstergo industries. He is a fanatical member of the Templar‘s.

Iron Man is a big part of what I’m basing this casting choice on as the characters are very similar in some ways. Despite that, I think he’s the right choice for this role and would make for a really effective villain. The fact he also looks perfect for the part is a bonus.

A scientist for Abstergo Industries, Lucy Stillman was confirmed to be a spy for the Assassins working inside the Templar faction for information. The Animus was mostly her brainchild.

Well, she voiced the character in the game and gave her likeness so although this might seem like a bit of a lazy casting choice I’d love to see her in a big screen role like this! In my opinion, she’s a beautiful and talented actress who would be just as perfect for a live action version.
