Michael Fassbender & Marion Cotillard Aren't Worried About The Video Game Film Curse With 'Assassin's Creed'
“I was naive to be honest, it’s only in a hindsight in one, sort of journalists to tell you there’s a curse on video games. Then you go through the films that have been made… It’s only a curse until somebody makes a good one, and then it’s a different story,” the 39-year-old actor recently told IGN.
“For me, I just found this universe to be fascinating and I thought there was so much in it that would lend itself so well to cinema experience,” Michael added. “Never really concern me, and again, those kind of worries, or anything, you would stress around these areas is pointless, because there’s nothing you can do about that all. Only you can do is focus your energies and try to make something good. Stressing about things like that don’t get you anywhere.”
“Justin [Kurzel] is an amazing director with a vision, who’s not just a technician,” Marion, 41, expressed. “That’s why Michael got Justin on board, was to have the movie of the director, and not just a movie based on a video game, with very good technicians; and a studio movie. There’s a vision behind the project.”
