Michael Fassbender is certainly moving full steam ahead in his career, and shows no signs of slowing down.
Variety is reporting Fassbender will star in and produce and adaptation of Assassin’s Creed, based on the game from Ubisoft. It’s been Ubisoft’s biggest franchise since the first game hit in 2007.
Creed tells the story of “a man who learns his ancestors were trained assassins after he is kidnapped by a secret organization with ties to the Knights Templar, and sent back in time to retrieve historical artifacts.”
Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures, on Fassbender:
“Michael Fassbender was our first choice. He is an extremely smart, talented, versatile and committed actor.”
No director or writer has been chosen, but with Fassbender attached expect a choice to be made soon.
