Writer Michael Lesslie, who has previously worked on some short films, is set to write the on-screen adaptation for Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed. Previous news for this project confirmed that Michael Fassbender will star and produce the film (although no confirmation on role).
New Regency and Ubisoft Motion Pictures will be working closely on this project (and also have Splinter Cell in the works with Tom Hardy). No confirmation on the director or cast yet but Assassin’s Creed is scheduled for a late 2013 release.
Assassin’s Creed “centers on a bartender who is captured by a secret corporation and sent back in time to relive the memories of his ancestors — all of them assassins — and retrieve ancient artifacts.”
