We’ve known for some time that Ubisoft were working on a live action movie adaptation of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, which has so far enjoyed some pretty decent live action short films to promote their games. We already knew that Michael Fassbender was to play the leading role, but that was all. Now, we get to see him!
Playing the role of Callum Lynch, Michael Fassbender will indeed be adorned in the robes of an assassin, playing a new character made especially for the movie version. The movie won’t try to replicate the plot of any of the games in the series, but will most likely follow the overarching story of the apple of Eden and the warring gods. It will, however, be set in 15th Century Spain.
The Assassin’s Creed movie will open in theaters on an expected December 21st, 2016 date, although between now and then, that could easily change. So, what do you make of Michael Fassbender as an assassin?
