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

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. In the meantime, follow @assassinscreed.

This looks damn fine

Fassbender is born to play the Assassin's Creed.

I remember the Prince of Persia movie. I know better than to think this will be any good, the games of late have been so so.

Higgens on Aug 27, 2015


But this is Michael Fassbender. He can mold a horrible script (if that were the case) into a great movie cause he's just THAT good.

Cyberdine on Aug 31, 2015


Guess you missed Prometheus. Sure he was the best part of the movie, movie was still a steaming pile.

Higgens on Aug 31, 2015


Nope. Saw Prometheus. However, he was not the lead of the movie.

Cyberdine on Aug 31, 2015


So what? A great actor cant do shit with a crappy screen play. And its a video game movie, so it has a shitty screen play. Im sure he will be good. Im sure the movie will not be.

Its a good look.

Chelsea on Aug 27, 2015


LOL. At least the costuming will be amazing. // This could be Fassbender's first serious bomb.

DAVIDPD on Aug 27, 2015


Check out Justin Kurzel's work. He's a great director and has worked with Fassbender before.

KDV on Aug 27, 2015


I don't doubt his acumen. It's just how much of his movie this will be vs. the studios has me worried.

DAVIDPD on Aug 27, 2015


The studio has you worried? Bruh the writers have me more worried. Bill Collage and Adam Cooper - New York Minute, Accepted, Tower Heist, Exodus Gods & Kings, and The Transporter Refuelled. Michael Lesslie who worked with Kurzel on Macbeth is listed as a screenwriter but he is probably just doing last minute rewrites. Don't even know how much of it could be salvaged though.

Jordan Odinson on Aug 27, 2015


I can't wait for this one. I didn't even play a ton of Assassin's Creed, but Fassbender being such a sweet actor and the parkour, knives, and ninja like abilities of the typical Assassin's Creed character sounds like a ton of fun in a movie.

looks fine but watch the movie slow West with Fassbender. It's a very good western movie....

ari smulders on Aug 28, 2015


Meh. Never was much of an AC fan, and I don't have any faith in Hollyweird gettin any video game movie right.

John Doe on Aug 28, 2015


That looks like a really poor photoshop effort.

Mr Chatterbox on Aug 28, 2015


Costume looks great and I'm sure Fassbender will be a great assassin. Video game adaptations get a bad rep in general, deservedly so, still I'm cautiously looking forward to further developments. Even if most of the gameplay in the AC sequels felt uninspired, I have to say the storylines do offer potential for film (I really enjoyed the narratives in AC2 and Black Flag).

Fassbender is a good actor..
