It’s Fassassin’s Creed as we get the first look at Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch drapedand cloaked in the first Assassin’s Creed image. The big question is will this film break the pathetic duck of poor video game come feature films adaptations?
Based on Ubisoft game Assassin’s Creed thanks 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.
The film will see Fassbender team up with MacBeth co-star Marion Cotillard and the film’s director Justin Kurzel (Snowtown), with Michael Kenneth Williams,Ariane Labed also starring.Production will officially start in Malta next week, with Spain and London also on the card too. I know this game for a long time never played but I honestly didn’t realise the games leading character was a Scottish assassin!We know Fassbender is good at the accents here’s hoping the Scot’s one is one of is authentic accents!
The image maybe early as Assassin’s Creed is not due to arrive in UK&Irish cinemas until 21st December.
