Ubisoft Targets Michael Fassbender For Lead in Assassin’s Creed Movie

German-born Hollywood Actor Michael Fassbender is the top tip to play the leading role in a new movie based on the popular Assassin’s Creed games.

It’s been confirmed by Ubisoft Studios CEO Jean Julian-Baronnet that if and when the Assassin’s Creed picture is made (and it looks highly likely that it will) the 35-year old Inglourious Basterds actor is the man they want under the now iconic assassin’s cowl. Ubisoft Studios is the film development off-shoot of the Assassin’s Creed game’s development co. and was forged so the company could retain creative control over any motion picture based on its gaming line-up.

However, despite Ubisoft’s appraisal of the actor it looks like Sony will be the one to actually handle the film when it’s ready to be made and whether Michael will still be the name attached remains to be seen until the green light is given for this much-anticipated of adaptations.

Fassbender most recently starred as the android David in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus and has appeared as a young Magneto in X-Men: First Class – so he is indeed no stranger to fulfilling the dreams of legions of nerds and an appearance as the main role in an Assassin’s Creed movie would ultimately be another string in his bow!

Recently British comedian and Star Wars: The Phantom Menace actor Peter Serafinowicz announced on Twitter that he will be providing a voice in the upcoming Assassion’s Creed 3 game. The Gadget Helpline covered this unofficial of announcements in a previous article.
