Adam Cooper and Bill Collage to do a rewrite on Assassin's Creed

While itís still up in the air on whether Daniel Espinosa will direct or not, it looks like another draft of the ASSASSINíS CREED script is being commissioned.

The writing duo of Adam Cooper and Bill Collage will take over penning duties on the video game adaptation. Those may not be names that you know right off the bat, but theyíve been around since 2004. Their credits include ACCEPTANCE and TOWER HEIST, so itís interesting that they would be considered for something like this.

Word has it that their original draft for Ridley Scottís EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS starring Christian Bale was a good one. They also recently finished a draft for Darren Aronofskyís George Washington bio, THE GENERAL. Sometimes you gotta write some not so great stuff to get to the good stuff.

For those in the dark about all things ASSASSINíS CREED, hereís a brief summary: A man learns his ancestors were trained assassins after he is kidnapped by a secret organization with ties to the Knights Templar and is sent back in time to retrieve historical artifacts.

Iím thinking that Cooper and Collage might make this a film worthy of Michael Fassbenderís talents. The game is good, and the fans of it deserve something quality.

Honestly, with Ubisoft retaining control over everything, I'm filled with a lot of confidence - they're going the Marvel route with this. Sure the last installment was quite underwhelming (I just play the game to get to the big cool reveal at the end) but if done right (on par with their very cool trailers) this could be great.

The only reason I am interested in this is because of Fassbender. Hopefully the film lives up to his talent.

Actually there is no time travel in the story/game. It's more like The Matrix where they jack into the memories of their ancestors
