Michael Fassbender To Star In 'Assassin's Creed'!

Michael Fassbender will star in and co-produce Assassin’s Creed, according to Variety.

The 35-year-old actor will play the lead character in the big-screen adaptation of Ubisoft’s video game franchise. Michael will produce through his production company, DMC Film.

Michael Fassbender was our first choice,” Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of Paris-based Ubisoft Motion Pictures, said. “Michael is an extremely smart, talented, versatile and committed actor.”

Assassin’s Creed 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.

This is going to be either hit or miss.

# 2

I love Michael Fassbender. He is a great actor, but I don’t think he is the right choice.

# 3

Movies based on video games are almost always mediocre. I think Michael is a bit too talented for this role… Just saying.

# 4

I hope Kristen Bell will also be in the movie since she’s in the video game.

# 5

I have to agree not the right choice and it’s probably going to suck as all movies based on video game do.

# 6

I really want this movie to be good, but I have to agree with #5 after Prince of Persia I just don’t have it in me to be disappointed by thinking that a movie based on a video game I love is going to be awesome so I’ll stick with it’ll probably suck.

# 7

Honestly would have rather seen Zachary Quinto or someone else matching the part better. I love Michael and I’m sure he’ll do a great job with the part (even if the script is crap) but this worries me already.

# 8

Oh no! I love AC but Fassbender?? Please!

# 9

NO…why would you do this Michael? You’re so good at what you do, why not stay with great characters instead of this stupid video game stuff… I don’rtwant to lose all respect for you like I did with Jake Gyllenhaal.

Isn’t Knights Templar the name of the organization that Breivik pretends to be apart of? I didn’t know it came from an actual video game…

It’ll be cool to see this video game turn into a movie. I am looking forward to see if Fassbender can pull it off. He’s a great actor and well, pretty nice to look at. This may turn out really well! xD

AMAZING game series! I approve, I think Fassbender is a strong lead. However, it depends how it’s written and how the cinematography is. I truly hope it does well, but we will see…

“Michael is an extremely smart, talented, versatile and committed” and HOT actor!

I’m not gonna lie I know Nothing at all about Assassins Creed but anything that has to do with Fassy and I’m 100% in . Love him and his work . :D
