Michael Fassbender Says 'Assassin's Creed' Set Was Like The U.N!

Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard have teamed up with Australian director Justin Kurzel once again on their new film Assassin’s Creed, which was shot in Malta, Spain and England, and is based on a hugely popular video game inspired by a Slovenian novel.

“It was great. It was an international set. We also had a French woman, a Swede, a French man, so it was a nice mix. It was like the UN,” the 39-year-old actor expressed while promoting the flick with Marion, 41, and Justin at their photo call for Assassin’s Creed on Monday (November 28) in Sydney, Australia.

“These sort of films tend to be… If you’re doing over the 100 million [US dollar] mark, in general people are looking for a series of films,” Michael added. “So the universe of Assassin’s Creed allows us to go forward and make some more films, depending obviously on how this one does.”

“When I worked with Justin the first time, and all these amazing people he brought with him to work on Macbeth, I just had a very, very strong experience,” Marion added. “Justin is definitely one of the best directors I’ve worked with so I was super excited and happy to get to work with him again on this very different project.”

FYI: Marion is wearing an Audra dress paired with Ofée Joaillerie earrings.

Here’s what the 39-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On if he’s a gamer after starring in Assassin’s Creed: “The last time I had a serious stint with video games was 2000. There was a period of time where I was working in this warehouse at night. I would come home in the morning and just sit down in front of this racing game—I can’t even remember the name of it—and play it over and over.”

On his family: “They’re very much a part of who I am. Somebody was asking me…when I do emotional scenes, how do I go about getting there? What I do more often than not is pray to relatives who are gone. I feel like they are there with me. There are times in life where I’ve just thought, Somebody was looking after me there. Somebody was looking out for me.”

On playing Steve Jobs in Jobs: “I always liked him. I never wanted to represent him in a vile way. When I watch [the film] now, I just see someone who found it difficult to come to terms with other people.”

Michael Fassbender's 'Trespass Against Us' Trailer - Watch Now!

The first trailer for Trespass Against Us has just been released.

Here’s an official synopsis: The film is set across three generations of the Cutler family who live as outlaws in their own anarchic corner of Britain’s richest countryside. Chad Cutler (Michael Fassbender) is heir apparent to his bruising criminal father, Colby (Brendan Gleeson) and has been groomed to spend his life hunting, thieving and tormenting the police. But with his own son, Tyson (Georgie Smith) coming of age, Chad soon finds himself locked in a battle with his father for the future of his young family. When Colby learns of Chad’s dreams for another life he sets out to tie his son and grandson into the archaic order that has bound the Cutler family for generations. He engineers a spectacular piece of criminal business involving a heist, a high-speed car chase and a manhunt, which leaves Chad bruised and bloodied and with his very freedom at stake. With the law cracking down and his father tightening his grip, Chad is forced into increasingly desperate measures.

The film will be available on DirecTV on November 24 and in theaters in 2017.
