Assassin's Creed movie set for August 2015

Ubisoft has announced that the live action adaptation of the Assassin's Creed games will now open in what will be one of the most crowded blockbuster movie summers in living memory

Release Date: 13/11/2013

In what will be one of the most crowded blockbuster movie summers in living memory, Ubisoft has announced that the live action adaptation of the Assassin's Creed games will now open on 7th August 2015, rather than the previously announced June.

That's probably a wise move, given that the summer months already have The Avengers 2, Batman vs Superman, Jurassic World, Terminator 5, Ted 2 and a rebooted Fantastic Four jostling for screen space. Even a sure thing like Star Wars Episode VII has opted out of that scrum, retreating to a winter release for the first time in the series history.

Ubisoft is treading very carefully with its new motion picture department, hoping to break the cycle of disappointing movie adaptations that games - including its own Prince of Persia - have suffered. With that in mind, the publisher has teamed up with movie studio New Regency to bring Assassin's Creed to the big screen.

"We don't want to make games just for the sake of movies," Ubisoft Motion Pictures boss Jean-Julien Baronnet said last month. "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."

Critically acclaimed actor Michael Fassbender is signed to star, and the script was originally written by Scott Frank, who adapted Minority Report for Spielberg and Out of Sight for Steven Soderbergh. That script is now being polished by British playwright Michael Leslie, best known for his work at the National Theatre.

Will this be the movie to finally get gaming right on the big screen? We'll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, at least there's the rather excellent Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag to keep us busy.
