Michael Fassbender, the star of X-Men First Class and, more recently, Prometheus is due to be donning the Assassin’s hood in a film adaptation of Ubisoft’s highly successful Assassin’s Creed series. Variety reported that the “Plot revolves around a man who learns his ancestors were trained assassins after he is kidnapped by a secret org with ties to the Knights Templar, and sent back in time to retrieve historical artifacts”. So we could be seeing a film that encompasses all the games thus far, even perhaps a nod to the third addition to the series which is due to be released in October.
Jean-Julien Baronnet said that Fassbender was his first choice to appear in a film adaptation saying “Michael is an extremely smart, talented, versatile and committed actor”. But who will the Master of Magnetism be playing? Judging by the brief synopsis offered it would appear he would play the role of Desmond Miles, the bartender-turned-lab rat and then assassin by Abstergo Industries.
