Marion Cotillard set to co-star with Michael Fassbender in Assassin's Creed

02.13.2015

Despite being pushed to next year, ASSASSIN'S CREED is not in development hell. After landing Michael Fassbender as star and producer, the video game adaptation has been bouncing around a bit. But, a second cast-member has joined the production. Marion Cotillard will appear opposite Fassbender in the film, a reunion for the pair who worked together on the upcoming MACBETH.

Cotillard is best known for her roles in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and INCEPTION as well as her Oscar-winning turn in LA VIE EN ROSE. Cotillard's character in ASSASSIN'S CREED is currently unknown but it is expected to be a multi-film role should the adaptation prove to be a hit and worthy of sequels.

While we don't know for certain, ASSASSIN'S CREED seems to be based on the first game in the series which focused on the character of Altair during the Third Crusade in the 12th century. Whether the movie will feature Fassbender as the contemporary character of Miles sent back in time or not remains to be seen. Other rumors have the movie set during the Spanish Inquisition, but nothing is confirmed.

ASSASSIN'S CREED is set to be directed by Justin Kurzel who helmed MACBETH, making this a reunion for everyone involved so far. Hopefully we will learn more soon as the film will enter production later this year to make it's set release date of December 21, 2016.

I call it

after the dominance of comic book adaptations the next logical step is video-game movie adaptations, this isn't much of a stress considering the most successful media is from that platform.

Here's hoping they bypass getting their inspiration from AC1 and instead use AC2. It would make much more sense for Fassbender to play Ezio Auditore rather than Altair.

I'm really hoping that the first good one will be Warcraft, March 2016, and that this one, December 2916, will be the second one.

They've got two strong leads now. The movie shouldn't be in limbo for long.

I'm excited about seeing these 2 in Macbeth. When does that get released? Now that I think about it, although I've read the play, I don't think I've ever seen any film version of Macbeth.

Don't know how much I need an Assassin's Creed movie, but these actors are exceptional so I'll give it a shot for sure.
