That’s the situation! It has been confirmed that Michael Fassbender, who you may know from films like X-Men: First Class (As Lensherr) or the recent Prometheus (as David), will take the starring role in the upcoming film based on Ubisoft’s hit videogame series.
Exactly who Fassbender will star as has not yet been announced. Could it be Desmond? Altair? Ezio? Or maybe an all-new character…
According to Variety, the story Assassin’s Creed the movie “… will revolve around a man who learns his ancestors were trained assassins after he is kidnapped by a secret org with ties to the Knights Templar, and sent back in time to retrieve historical artifacts.”
Of course, the next big release in the extremely popular Assassin’s Creed franchise is the third core entry in the series. The Assassin’s Creed 3 release date is October 30th 2012 for Xbox 360, PS3, PC and Wii U.
