Assassin's Creed movie could begin filming next year

Release Date: 23/10/2012

Ubisoft has announced that it plans to go full steam ahead on a movie adaptation of the Assassin's Creed games, with shooting on the blockbuster set to begin as early as Summer 2013.

The film has already signed up top actor Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class, Prometheus) as both star and producer. The race is now on to get a script ready and a director to sit in the fancy chair and shout "Action!"

The film will be a co-production with Hollywood company New Regency. Jean-Julien Baronnet is the man in charge of the new Ubisoft Motion Pictures division, and he reassured fans that this won't be another hurried cash-in. "We don't want to make games just for the sake of movies," he said. "We want to make them in concert with the games. Bringing aboard New Regency's renowned production and distribution expertise while maintaining our own creative and financial flexibility ensures that Assassin's Creed will be a high-quality film that respects the lore and fans of the video game franchise."

If the Assassin's Creed movie shoots next year, it could see cinemas as soon as 2014, the same year as the Need for Speed film, which recently signed Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul to sit behind the wheel of its many super sports cars. Could we be seeing the start of a new era in video game movies?

Assassin's Creed III is out next week for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The PC version follows on November 23rd, with a Wii U edition on November 30th.
