It’s been a while since a movie news post, however after hearing about this little nugget of goodness, now seemed like a prime time!
The Bafta-nominated actor Michael Fassbender has been cast in a film adaptation of video game titan Assassin's Creed. The X-Men: First Class actor will prove his talent has no bounds as he is down to co-produce the movie as well.
Jean-Julien Baronnet from Ubisoft games gushed Fassy’s praises by saying "Michael Fassbender was our first choice," and called him "extremely smart, talented, versatile and committed." That sounds about right…
If sales of the video game are anything to go by (more than 30 million copies sold) it feels like this movie may just be a hit. The game is about a family of assassins and their conflict with the Knights Templar, which spans the Crusades, the Italian Renaissance and, in a forthcoming instalment, the American War of Independence.
And just because we can, here’s a gratuitous picture of the man of the moment: Michael Fassbender.
