Assassin’s Creed is heading for the big screen.
‘Prometheus’ star Michael Fassbender has signed to star in and produce the film based on one of the most popular video game franchises ever.
Ubisoft has nabbed Michael Fassbender, one of Hollywoodâ€™s most in-demand actors, to topline its big-screen adaption of Assassinâ€™s Creed.
Fassbender will play Desmond Miles, a bartender who is a descendant of several lines of prominent assassins. The story weaves between present day and ancient times as Miles squares off with the Knights Templar.
When exactly ‘Assassin’s Creed’ will go into production is unclear. Whenever it happens though, we can probably expect a big box office win. A 2011 report from VG247.com reported that the games franchise had sold 30 million copies since 2007.
If those 30 million game sales turn into 30 million ticket sales, ‘Assassin’s Creed’ will end up in some pretty spectacular company at the box office.
