Assassin's Creed Movie Enlists Shame and Prometheus Actor, Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender, star of movies like X-Men: First Class, Shame and Prometheus, is set to star in Ubisoft's planned Assassin's Creed movie, taking a seat as co-producer with his company DMC Film on the project to boot. According to Variety Fassbender will assume the role of one of the iconic hooded assassins from the series, most likely Altair.

Reports suggest that the Assassin's Creed movie will be an adaptation of the original game, which means Fassbender would play Altair and presumably Desmond too. "Michael Fassbender was our first choice," said Ubisoft Motion Pictures boss Jean-Julien Baronnet. "Michael is an extremely smart, talented, versatile and committed actor."

Sony Pictures had been in the frame to distribute the movie, but negotiations reportedly stalled following "ridiculous" demands from Ubisoft. Once a writer and director are appointed for the Assassin's Creed movie - Fassbender's star power should help there - talks with Sony should resume, according to Ubisoft.

"We're open to re-discuss with the key studios once the production package is finalised," Baronnet continued. "Whatever the financial model, Ubisoft Motion Pictures will limit its risk investment."

This won't be Ubisoft's first film adaptation, with Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer's Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time releasing in 2010, raking in a disappointing $335 million worldwide. Splinter Cell and Ghost Recon are also other possible franchises that Ubisoft could be looking to bring to the big screen in the future.
