British Playwright To Pen Script For Assassin's Creed Film

Assassin's Creed is one of the most popular and acclaimed franchises of the generation. So what will the movie be like?

We'll have to wait a while to find out, but at least we know the project has a writer now. According to The Hollywood Reporter, British playwright Michael Lesslie is on board to pen the script.

Lesslie wrote "Prince of Denmark" for the theater, which was a sequel to Shakespeare's legendary "Hamlet." Lesslie is also responsible for some short films, including "Skirt" and "Heavy Metal Drummer." Making the leap to feature films and writing a script based on Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed should make for an interesting venture, and it's encouraging that they tapped someone with theater experience. Perhaps that will assist in adding some stage-quality emotion and drama to the movie, which could really benefit from such elements.

However, New Regency and Ubisoft are still looking for a director and producers for the project, so there's no knowing when the film will actually be released. Just gotta be patient, I guess.

I also heard you have to be really quiet in the theater or the ushers will gang up on you and kill you.
