Justin Kurzel Reveals The Time Period He'd Like To Place An ASSASSIN'S CREED Sequel In

The director of the upcoming Assassin's Creed film adaptation has hinted at what may be coming next after The Spanish Inquisition for the second installment of the Assassins & Templar's war story...

There's less than two weeks until director Justin Kurzel's Assassin's Creed adaptation releases in theatres. The Ubisoft game series is best known for its variety of historical settings, from the Third Crusade to 19th century London.  In a recent interview with French website PREMIERE, Kurzel shared some interesting ideas on where he would set a sequel, and it's definitely something unexpected.

"I thought about maybe not going too far back, maybe into, like, the '50's in America. You kow, I think that could be a really interesting period around the Cold War. Traditionally, I think they've gone back further than that. Recent history is something I'm quite interested in. You can definitely kind of do a film-noir thing to it." The Assassins series has yet to step into such recent history, so a Cold War setting would certainly be a bold choice if the film series continues.

The director also expanded on why the Spanish Inquisition was the best choice to kick off the events of the first film.  "I think there's great scope there to kind of go into. I think you have to go into volatile points of history, that's why The Spanish Inquisition work so well, because you got something the assassins could rally against in terms of the religious persecution that was going on there."

Do you think that America in the 1950's is a good choice for the next Assassin's Creed film? The first installment releases on December 21, 2016.

Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day.
