Michael Fassbender MovieMichael Fassbender will be starring in the Assassin’s Creed movie

Then again, if video games aren’t your thing: fear not. The movie based on the game is coming, but it might take a little longer than originally planned. The upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie is scheduled for release in May 2015 - nine months from now - but not much progress has officially been made. That won’t stop leading man Michael Fassbender from talking about it, though. According to Fassbender, he wants the movie to honor the game as closely as possible, and also dispelled rumors that he was leaving the project. “I'm still a part of Assassin's Creed, and we're working on the script as we speak,” he told IGN. “We absolutely want to respect the game. There's so much cool stuff in the game that we're actually spoiled for choice in terms of what we can use and what we can't.” While no other casting info is known yet, MacBeth director Justin Kurzel will be taking over directing duties.

An Assassin’s Creed movie is a tricky thing, and it can either turn out to be a massive failure, or really good. It all depends on a couple of things: in which time period will the movie be set? The games have been in eras such as the Renaissance and Colonial era, so it’s important that the movie’s environment is done right. What’s equally as important as the historical setting is also the present day setting. As the games rely heavily on the integration of a present day plotline with DNA memory, it’s an intriguing concept that can either make or break the film depending on how well it’s handled. Aside from plot and setting, there needs to be a presence of popular game mechanics, too. Things like stealth kills with the famous hidden blade, parkour, and leaps of faith - the huge dives off of giant buildings - will all separate the Assassin’s Creed movie from just turning into another corny action film. There’s a lot of potential here with a feature film, and it’ll be up to Fassbender and Kurzel to get it right.
