Assassin's Creed Movie Gets New Date
What are the chances of this movie being good? Anyone want to make a prediction?
Ubisoft's live-action movie starring Oscar-nominated actor Michael Fassbender now has a release date, as revealed by The Hollywood Reporter: December 21, 2016.
Initially, the film was supposed to be in theaters by August 2015 but Fox was forced to delay the project in September 2014 due to "production issues." Fassbender will be in the lead role and Justin Kurzel is the director; interestingly, the latter directed the former in the upcoming film, "Macbeth." In speaking about the "Assassin's Creed" movie last year, Fassbender said it would be respectful of the game, but they also want to "bring new elements to it and perhaps our own vision of things that already exist in the game."
Well, sure. Just make sure you don't mangle what's already in the series. There's a huge amount of immensely intriguing elements involving assassins and Templars, and it's way more complex than most people think. ...and Hollywood has a problem with "complex."
