The big screen adaptation of ASSASSIN'S CREED has been given a release date!!!
Hey Yo! Draven here.
Coming Soon is reporting that the ASSASSIN’S CREED film adaptation will be hitting theaters May 22, 2015, so just two short years away. (Man, what a summer 2015 will be if all of these films stick around.) This is Memorial Day weekend, which many people assumed would be the release date for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. If that happens expect this to move.
All we know so far is that Michael Fassbender will be playing the lead role, Michael Lesslie will be writing the script, and 20th Century Fox/New Regency will be financing and distributing the movie. No director or other cast has been announced yet but that should be coming soon.
I don’t have a lot of attachment to the source material, having only played the first game. It was a pretty good game and this seems like it has a chance to be our first really good video game adaptation. From what I hear, the ASSASSIN’S CREED sequels are even better and more cinematic. Plus, I love Michael Fassbender and will watch anything he is a part of so I am really excited for this. I just hope they get a director that excites me and not somebody like Fox's go-to-hack, John Moore.
Those of you who have more knowledge of this source material, are the games going to be easy to adapt to the big screen? Does Michael Fassbender seem like a good fit for this project? Who is your dream director for this project? Is this going to get lost in between AVENGERS 2 and EPISODE VII?
