Assassin?s Creed?movie is now official and reports say that the film?is now in early production.
The Assassin?s Creed?movie or a live-adaptation movie has been in talks for over two years now. Finally, a recent report suggests that it has received the green light for production.
Assassin?s Creed movie?in the works
New Regency films, the entertainment company behind “Gone Girl” and Oscar nominated film, “Bird Man,” has partnered with Ubisoft for the Assassin’s Creed movie, according to a report by Wired. Ubisoft?s CEO Yves Guillemot recently said (via Wired), ?We have the pleasure to announce today that the green light has been given by New Regency, and the production has already started.? He also added ?This is a very important milestone for the project and for our team on Assassin’s Creed.?
?Early production? in film making is a bit different compared to gaming, as Screenrant?pointed out. The outlet explained that a film in early production would mean that, the principal photography has already begun and that the casts are now finalized or at least a few of them. But since only Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard are confirmed to star in the movie, as Deadline reported, Yves Guillemot probably means that the film is in pre-production.
Assassins’ Creed?movie plot
As stated by Wired, the plot of the film is still unconfirmed but one thing is for sure, it will be an adaptation of the first game in the franchise. The lore will reportedly focus ?on people from the present relieving their ancestor?s genetic memories.?
Fassbender will play a dual role in this film, his ancestor from the past and the present character and both are members of the Assassin Brotherhood, the report added.
Let?s just hope that this will be a huge success, but it?s easy to assume that it will be a good film because this game is heavy on the story?and actually has a good plot.
Assassin?s Creed official release date
As for the official screening date of Assassin?s Creed movie, Screenrant reported that it will arrive in theaters on December 21, 2016.
