Assassin’s Creed: The Movie set for 2015 release.
It looks like the movie adaption of popular video game franchise Assassin’s Creed is set to be released on Memorial Weekend – May 22nd 2015.
Few details are yet known regarding the film or what plot will be undertaken. Michael Lesslie is set to be scripting the adaption of Ubisoft’s hit video game series, while Michael Fassbender is a confirmed actor. Seeing as Fassbender is currently the only confirmed actor, It looks promising that he will be the main character in the story.
We’re hoping the story will be taken from the Assassin’s Creed II or Brotherhood era, where the story follows Desmond Miles, a bartender who was kidnapped by an organisation named Abstergo. Abstergo forced him to relive his ancestors memories by using a machine called the Animus. In Assassin’s Creed II, Desmond relives Ezio Auditore who at the age of 17 finds out about the Assassin’s Order and sets to take revenge on the Templars while searching for pieces of Eden before the Templars do.
