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.
