Fassbender To Star In And Co-Produce Assassin's Creed Film

The exceptionally versatile Michael Fassbender - who's starred in films such as Inglourious Basterds, Hunger, X-Men: First Class, Prometheus, and Shame - will apparently be both starring in, and co-producing, a film based on Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed series.

According to Variety, Fassbender's production company DMC Film will be co-producing the picture alongside Ubisoft Motion Pictures.

"Michael Fassbender was our first choice" to play the franchise's iconic hooded hero, said Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of UMP. "Michael is an extremely smart, talented, versatile and committed actor."

Ubisoft appear to be seeking greater creative control over their transmedia products, understandable after the lukewarm reception to Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Variety report that "UMP will package the project with a writer and director before resuming talks with the studio" with Baronnet telling the magazine that Ubisoft are "open to re-discuss with the key studios once the production package is finalized".

My faith in this movie has been restored. So what do you all think of the choice?

Hope they get the costume right and the free running part of the game.

Perfect choice but there is chance he may be playing Altair rather than Ezio

Even with Fassbender onboard I expect an Assassin's Creed movie to be pants

Francisco Randez should definately play Ezio. In fact, he should play Desmond, Altair and Ezio.

If someone pop's his pic up, you'll see why.

An AC film that tells a story that isn't one of the games would be great. I think the Russian assassin story from the early 1900s in one of the comics would be great!

Of course he should be Ezio, Fassbender is a dude, but that guy is Ezio!
