Assassin’s Creed is set to start filming this August, according to the LinkedIn profile of Fannie Pailloux who is an executive producer at Ubisoft.
It seems as though the motion picture will have a release date sometime in the summer of 2015. Though, the full cast and crew is not yet disclosed we do know that actor Michael Fassbender will be a producer and the lead role in the film.
Fassbender has stated in an interview with The Daily Beast that he has not played Assassin’s Creed.
I’d heard of it but had never played the game. I don’t have a video game player … that’s not what they’re called. [Laughs] I met up with the guys from Ubisoft and they told me the story behind it, and I thought it was very interesting—the idea of reliving memories.
Gamers everywhere are wondering if Fassbender will be able to pull off the role and make their beloved Assassin’s Creed into an epic film on the big screen.
However, hearing that the lead actor doesn’t even own a console much less know what they’re called makes many players cautiously optimistic on whether the movie will be a hit.
