First Look: Michael Fassbender in Costume for 'Assassin's Creed' Movie
Meet Callum Lynch. Fox has unveiled the first photo of Michael Fassbender playing the lead character in an Assassin's Creed movie. We've been covering this one for years, as they've been developing it for a long long time ever since the Assassin's Creed game series became a huge hit. Lynch is actually a new character created for the film, and they're telling a story that isn't from any of the games. "After gaining incredible knowledge and skills he's poised to take on the oppressive Knights Templar in the present day." Marion Cotillard, Michael Kenneth Williams and Ariane Labed also star, but are not pictured yet. Looks good so far.
Here's the first look photo showing Michael Fassbender from Assassin's Creed, in high def from Yahoo:
Assassin's Creed, created by Patrice Desilets & Jade Raymond back in 2007, is an award winning historical fiction action-adventure open world stealth video game series that as of 2012 consists of five main games. The focus is on a protagonist character, an assassin, who usually wears a hooded outfit, which became the focus of their latest marketing campaign for AC: Revelations. The movie based on Assassin's Creed is being directed by Australian filmmaker Justin Kurzel, of The Snowtown Murders and Macbeth previously. They are filming partially around Malta. 20th Century Fox will release Assassin's Creed on December 21st, 2016 more than a year from now. We'll be watching closely for updates.
