Assassin’s Creed is an immensely successful franchise which turned heads from Hollywood and it was proposed to be made into a movie.
The original schedule was to release the first iteration next year, in 2015 but it looks like the company is not going to go ahead with the plan. However, 20th Century Fox has confirmed that they will focus on a brand new project featuring the whacky hero Deadpool who may get a movie of his own and it will get released before the end of 2015.
Official Site’s Sources
An Assassin’s Creed movie starring Michael Fassbender was confirmed last year and the flick was originally scheduled to get released in August, 2015. In the movie website The Hollywood Report, the site reported that according to official sources the movie has been postponed to an unknown date in 2016. It is a full two year delay but we assume it could be due to multiple hurdles that the movie makers came across.
One of the reasons the production house states is that the screenplay and the scripts have been going under several rewrites so as to come up with the best tone for the first movie. It has also been added that the production has to stop because Michael Fassbender the lead actor in the movie who’s supposed to play as Assassin had some scheduling issues. He is also roped in to play the lead in MacBeth directed by Justin Kurzel.
Staying True To Original Content
In an interview that took place last month, Michael Fassbender confidently said that the movie will definitely be respectful of the original game and will be made in such a way that fans of the franchise are not disappointed with the end product. “We are also looking forward to bring new elements to the new movie so that it matches with audience and introduces them to the world. We are also trying to add a new vision to the existing game and make it more sophisticated.”
The production house has decided to move forward with Deadpool starring Ryan Reynolds in the lead. Ubisoft is now one of the most wanted companies in Hollywood because the company has a solid number of six movies lined up for making. They have signed up to make movies on Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, Far Cry, Watch Dogs and Rabbids. Assassin’s Creed is definitely the biggie in the list.
