Assassin's Creed: Revelations
Assassin's Creed Movie Enlists Shame and Prometheus Actor, Michael Fassbender
Written By
View author's profile

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.

I don't why Prince of Persia didn't make a little bit more money. I thought it was a decent film. I also can't wait for this and AC3.

I think he'd fit the bill pretty well, but I don't know if the film would be any good; in theory it's got potential, but we all know how these movies turn out..

'raking in a disappointing $335 million worldwide.'

What a world we live in when that's disappointing!

Game to films died the day Van Dammne punched Raul Julia and the camera zoomed in on his muscles.

Michael Fassbender looks nothing like Altair or Desmond though... Don't get me wrong, he's a great actor, but surely they would look for someone who resembles the the actual characters.
And why is he playing both Desmond AND Altair when they are separate people? Desmond should be played by someone else, as he has features from all of his ancestors, not just Altair.

Any movie made of AC is destined to not only be a failure, but also something else to make the series as a whole, look bad.

No movie should ever be made into a game, and no game should ever be made into a movie. When will people realize this?

Michael Fassbender is an amazing up and coming actor but he is kinda wrong for the role of Altair, he would be a good choice for the role of Vidic or maybe Al Mualim, i know there older type characters but age does not really matter when it comes adaptations.

I dont get the hate on Michael Fassbender. Would you rather have some random dude that looks like desmond/altair? That would be incredibly stupid considering that he is an amazing actor, also keep in mind that with the right makeup much is possible, just appreciate they got a first class actor for the AC Movie.

Also just thought of something- Lucy was modelled after the Kristen Bell who also did Lucy's voice. She also played the woman who could control lightning in Heroes, so she can definitely act in real life. Will she reprise her role in the film?

@5 Because Desmond and Altair share the same character model in the games, they are identical right down to the scar on their mouths, Ezio also looks like Desmond and even shows him getting his scar in a brawl at the beginning of AC2.

Its not been fully explained why they all look near identical but their are theories out there. This is why whoever plays Desmond will have to play Altair.

@15 In Revelations, they have changed Desmond's look slightly to make them more distinctive, and Altair looks a lot different than in the first game as well. I just assumed that Ubi were trying to make them into their own unique characters.
I admit that they look very similar, and it can be hard to find look alikes for certain people, but I just feel that unless they can really change his features with make-up it will look very weird having the same person in 2 different time eras.
Even stranger when it comes to Ezio/ Altair/ Desmond in AC Revelation movie (assuming the films are popular enough to get that far).

Prince of Persia was a mediocre, forgettable film. I watched it and enjoyed it enough to not regret it, but there was nothing about it that really stood out in my mind. It was completely average and middle of the road.

As for Fassbender in Assassin's Creed, I have no problem with this. The "he doesn't look like Altaïr" argument holds no real relevance to intelligent people. As long as he has the attitude, movements, and speech patterns down, and I have no doubt he can do those things, he will redefine Altaïr. Hugh Jackman didn't look exactly like Wolverine before the first X-Men movie, and I think his portrayal went pretty well.

Hm. Not sure how I feel about this. Fassbender's cool and all, but I'm not sure that he's who I picture when I think of Desmond and *especially* Altair. I'll give that he's got a lot of talent, but I'm not sold on him as my key characters just yet.

Also, can Fassbender pull of an Arabic accent? He may not have to in the first film because Abstergo's Animus is apparently "primitive" and can't handle giving Altair his actual accent, but if we get through to Revelations, he will need the proper accent.

@29 Clearly you have no idea what you are talking about. Watch 'Shame', 'Fish Tank' and 'Hunger' and then tell me Hugh Jackman is a better actor. Fassbender is right up the best of them. He has an unbelievable amount of talent and he has proved he can play hugley differring roles succesfully. He could pull of the remarkably simple character of Desmond/Altier without reading the script most likely.

I don't really care about Fass not looking like Desmond/Altair from the game because I believe he's physically capable of being an Assassin. And as for the accent they'll probably just go with classic English just like Rome, The Borgias etc.

I think Fassbender is easily placing himself as one of the new Hollywood elite. The guy just has class, and frankly he scares me. I don't have faith that any game movie can be anything above silly, but his performances are good enough to watch anything.

For those who don't think he'll be good at hand-to-hand combat scenes, watch Haywire.

@ #29: That's subjective and not at all what I was going for. You're on your own there.

@ #30/#32: Your not knowing the difference between 'of' and 'off' doesn't exactly give me hope for you, but allow me to explain my original point.

Yeah, Fassbender may not look like Altaïr or naturally speak with an Arabic accent, but that's why movie sets have a cosmetics and hair department as well as voice coaches. Besides, Altaïr walks around with half of his face covered up by his hood.

What, you thought Fassbender was just going to walk off the street, glance at his lines, and start a scene on the fly? Come on, give it ten seconds of thought.

@45 of/off was a typo, it happens sometimes.

And, I'm not saying that he won't be able to pull it off, or that he is just going to glance at his lines. I'm just giving my opinion that from what I have seen him in previously, although a brilliant actor who can pull off many different roles, at the moment I personally am not convinced that he is right for this role in particular.

I may be proven wrong, but at this stage I am not entirely convinced. I am just hoping that for once a movie can actually make a game's story work as well as if it had originally been written for the movie itself, while staying as close to the original game as possible. That's why I am voicing my current concerns.

But as I say, I may be proven wrong and change my mind when some footage comes out.

Folks are making a *lot* of assumptions here. All that we know *for sure* is that a)Fassbender and his production company are developing the film and b) he's going to have a part in the eventual movie. We don't know *what* part so all the praise/condemnation towards the idea of him playing Altair and/or Desmond is a bit premature.

@ #46: Read what #49 posted, throw in that there are 420 flags in the original game, and ask yourself if you really want a movie based on AC to stick to the game as closely "as possible". The slow parts of AC1 are possible, but no one is their right mind wants to watch that. Adaptations will have to be made. It would be unwise to get into your head that a movie HAS to be a certain way. Keep your mind open.

Why are you guys so stuck on the Altair-thing anyway - noone ever said anything 'bout the Arab.

Michael Fassbender will play "the iconic hooded hero" - for anything we know, this could be Ezio or even Connor from Assassin's Creed 3. Nobody knows yet, which eras and which assassins will be covered in the movie.

Fassbender is a fucking chameleon. He can play any role. And completely fucking own it.

Those of you bitching that "he doesn't look the part" need to shut the fuck up. Because that's probably one of the most brain-dead statements you could make given this news. I'd take an immensely talented actor that can kinda look the part and ace the role. Than some asshole that looks the part, but can't act for shit.

I think Fassbender would play great as Desmond/Altair. It doesnt matter if he doesnt look like them, as long as the movie kicks ass. Look at Max Payne and Prince of Persia.

Mark Wahlberg looks like Max, he did ok but the movie sucked. WTF with the story. He wanted to get revenge, not bullshit with drugs.

Jake Gyllenhaal looks like the Prince, but what really fucked up the movie was that it was a different plot. The Prince has a name and the only thing that the dagger did was Rewind. What happened to Slow Motion, Haste and Freeze? (And see the future)

Blame the movie makers, not the actors.

#5: No. That's everything wrong with video game adaptations, finding someone who looks the part instead of having the talent to pull the character off.
Try reminding me how good that Tekken live-action film adaptation was.

You know, people... if these movies HAD to have stars that looked EXACTLY like the characters being portrayed, it might: NEVER HAPPEN; only happen if it were animated, or... you had better expect to have some fucked-up-looking actors looking like some erratic animation that some of these games can have.

Besides... we currently have a "blonde" Bond, a "black" Nick Fury (and Samuel L. Jackson is pretty awesome in the role)... I don't think perfect resemblance is that critical. I'm more concerned about the story that most of these awful game-to-movie releases we've had! There's only been a few that were good.

So basically, AC III is to be the final good AC game before the franchise's breast pump goes into overdrive, kills us all, and we're replaced with other human-like creatures billions of years in the future, who only know of our existence because Ubisoft still somehow managed to release an AC game every year, in spite of our extinction.

You KNOW what I mean... Nick Fury did not originate as a black character! I have no problem with the reinterpretation of the character. Nick Fury isn't as well known (or loved) as other Marvel characters. I don't think ANYONE would have accepted Jackie Chan playing Wolverine, for example (although... I would probably be laughing the whole time, watching him play the part - it would just be really weird)! :-p

I haven't read comics since I was a teen... not looking to get back into them.

@70 if you have you have read them you wll remember the scene were fury states if a film was made of him they woiuld have to use Samual L Jackson as a nod to the actuality of it.

he originally looked like an old captain america with a rogue style gray hair.

Prince of Persia was really one of the only movies I enjoyed based off of a game. The short movie made for AC 2 was it ? Was pretty awesome a movie could only be better.

@75 They said he is going to play one of the iconic hooded assassins. Only question is, which one?

@5 hardly anyone who gets cast as a video game character will resemble them (christopher lambert as raiden anyone?) i would be more concerned with how close they stick to the original concept of the game and not just try and cash in on a succesful franchise (resident evil for example)

In my opinion they've probably only decided to want to make an AC movie because of how well the series has done over the years and would think that people want to see it. Why pay for a film when you have 4-5 perfectly good games that you could live. It baffles me! Movie producers/writers need to come up with something new and exciting other than recycling the same old. But oh well, who am I? They have the money lol
