Assassin's creed expected to be released in 2015
The long-awaited movie adaptation of video game "Assassin's Creed," is reportedly set to be released in 2015.
The feature-length motion film will be based on the series, and will be produced by Ubisoft Motion Pictures and Frank Marshall, and written by Michael Lesslie. It will also expected to be produced by Michael Fassbender ("X-Men: Days of Future Past," "12 Years a Slave").
Speculations also state that Fassbender will also play the lead role of protagonist Desmond Miles.
"A bartender is captured by a large corporation and is forced into a machine, named "The Animus", allowing him to relive the memories of his ancestors -- Most of whom are Assassins -- to retrieve powerful and dangerous artifacts," said the movie's IMDB page.
Fassbender confirmed a few months ago that that the movie is, indeed, happening. "That's definitely happening. We're just developing the script at the moment. I'd heard of it but had never played the game. I don't have a video game player ... that's not what they're called. [Laughs] I met up with the guys from Ubisoft and they told me the story behind it, and I thought it was very interesting-the idea of reliving memories," he told The Daily Beast.
Despite admitting to not being a gamer, the "X-Men" star has been involved in some gaming projects. He did the voice of one of the characters of Xbox 360's "Fable III."
Some of the reported writers who are onboard are Scott Frank, who did "Minority Report," as well as Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, who did the original draft of Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods and Kings."
The movie's development reportedly started in 2011. No formal announcement has been made, but the Assassin's Creed Wiki says that the planned released is on August 2015, under 20th Century Fox productions.
