Assassin's Creed Movie In The Works?

We've heard that Hollywood will be turning more and more to the video game industry for ideas, which is both good and bad. It's good because it helps brings gaming further into the limelight, but it's bad because...well, you know why. Most movies based on games turn out to be crap; just ask Uwe Boll.

Well, let's hope Boll isn't on tap to direct "Assassin's Creed," which is supposedly in the hopper. According to Kotaku, Variety's Ben Fritz has turned us onto two big games "on Hollywood's radar:" Bioshock and the aforementioned Ubisoft blockbuster. We had heard whispers about the former, but the latter is definitely a surprise, and we hope to high heaven that the powers that be don't screw it up. Here's the quote in question from Fritz's blog post related to EA CEO's John Riccitiello's "OMG Games > movies" speech:

"...a few big games like "Bioshock" and "Assassin's Creed" are, I hear, on Hollywood's radar."

Assassin's Creed was one of our favorite games of last year, and we hate it when excellent games are tragically transformed into movie turd. So if this gets confirmed at some point, we're crossing our fingers...

This could be both bad and good. I want to actually play through the "Assassin's 2" and the DS version (if there is a port to the now over-the-top, best selling PSP). I don't want to know what happens next without playing it first...

All i want to hear about is an Assassin's Creed 2 game. As long as that's made, i'm sure we'll all take a bad movie in return.

I head that they are going to try and keep with that whole mystery theme and stuff and that Assassins Creed 2 with be based on the Japanese Samurai's...which actually seems like a great idea

I would have thought basing it around Ninja would work better based on the first 1. Perhaps being there at Sekigahara being part of Tokugawa's victory.

Actually there is a movie that is very much like Assassins Creed. It has Saracens, Templar Knights, Salan Hadid and Jerusalem, Acre etc. The movie is called "Kingdom of Heaven". It was a pretty good movie and one of the best looking Blu-ray HD movies out there.

Hmmm the movie may spark some controversy so it may not be the best of ideas for one

Fantastic! Can't wait to get it!
Good, not sure if I'll buy immediately.
Eh, not bad, but I don't care.
It's just a stupid money grab.
