This coming December, 20th Century Fox will have the massive task of trying to break the curse that's been plaguing video game adaptations for decades by hopefully delivering a hit with Assassin’s Creed.
“We work in the dark, to serve the light. We are Assassins.” 20th Century Fox has unleashed a very cool video featurette showcasing the stomach-churning Leap of Faith stunt featured in their upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie.
With this summer’s most recent video game adaptation, Warcraft, proving to be a critical and box-office failure in the U.S. but making a boatload of money in China, all eyes are now turned towards Assassin’s Creed.
Ubisoft's four-part (with a fifth on the way) Assassin's Creed series is one of the most popular game franchises around, but at least one person is not impressed. A sci-fi novelist just filed a lawsuit asking for up to $5.25 million from Ubisoft, claiming that the developer lifted one of the game's key concepts from one of his self-published novels.
Assassin's Creed is finally going to be made into a movie! The extremely popular series of video games is now coming to the big screen; and as the famous assassin (well, there are quite a few, as AC players already know), we're getting no less than X-Men: First Class' master of magnetism himself.
First, it seemed some unprecedented dealmaking by developer Ubisoft may have doomed an Assassin's Creed flick before it ever got off the ground, then it looked like the developer would try to go it alone with Michael Fassbender as producer and star. But now, thanks to Fassbender's presence, that Assassin's Creed flick is getting some major Hollywood love.
