    Upcoming AC movie announces Michael Fassbender as lead role

    Will he play Ezio or Altair? thoughts?

    Michael Fassbender will star in Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed film.

    According to Variety, the acclaimed actor has been cast as "the franchise's iconic hooded hero". But of course, the series has featured several hooded heroes, from Altair to Ezio to Connor. If the film sticks closely to the chronology and storyline of the games, it's likely that Fassbender will take the role of Altair or Desmond (or maybe both).

    "Michael Fassbender was our first choice," said Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of Paris-based Ubisoft Motion Pictures. "Michael is an extremely smart, talented, versatile and committed actor."

    With roles in critically-acclaimed movies like Shame and blockbusters such as X-Men: First Class and Prometheus, Fassbender has quickly established himself as one of the most in-demand actors around, and his casting in the Assassin's Creed movie sends out a strong signal of intent by the recently-founded Ubisoft Motion Pictures. The film will also be produced by Fassbender's own company, DMC Film.

    Ubisoft was originally in talks with Sony Pictures to develop the franchise, but negotiations broke down last autumn. Ubisoft has since been developing the property independently to retain greater creative control. It's an approach it's also taking with other key properties, such as Splinter Cell. But once the film has a director and writer attached, the publisher is willing to speak with studios.

    "We're open to re-discuss with the key studios once the production package is finalised," Baronnet added. "Whatever the financial model, Ubisoft Motion Pictures will limit its risk investment."

    I'm really hoping they will do a separate story that fits into the canon but only peripherally intersects with the main storyline. Fassbender has such a wildcard quality, I think he could really pull it off as an Assassin!

    Haven't seen or have heard much about this guy. I think by looks he would have to be Altair, but they could put him as Desmond. Then again they could be doing an AC movie with none of the game characters, changing the story completely around by not going by the games at all, like they do with most game-based movies.

    Ohhh ok, that's my bad. Going to IGN it just had him posted as an actor in Hex a BBC show. Thought he looked much more familiar. Should have gone to imdb, freakin ign.

    Fun Fact: The Movie was almost canceled because ubisoft had too much control.


    so this will be good. Anyone watch Ghost Recon: Alpha? that's ubisoft quality.

    Hello? 300?! He was a scene-stealer in that movie. He has the right amount of darkness within his humanity (see X-Men First Class)... Everything I've read said a few years. *sigh* I'm hoping this sticks to the plan, though. With Ubisoft independently developing, there's a large chance it will NOT screw the pooch like other VG-big screen flops.
    Fassbender makes me wanna jiggle <~ srs? no brunettes?

    That Ghost Protocol looks sick!!!! Definitely good news for the AC movie . i don't care much for the games, but I can see myself enjoying the movie. Which game based on? OR will it just be some combination or all around original story?

    How will the movie work I wonder. If its based on AC I, will it have Altiar going back and forward or just going around the embassies for new jobs? AC II would be easier to make because it has a continuous storyline, not one that jumps around everywhere. Either way, they better not f*ck up the Assassins Creed franchise
