It was way back in July of 2012 when we learned that PROMETHEUS star Michael Fassbender had been tapped to star in the adaptation of the hit video game ASSASSIN'S CREED, but we haven't heard of much movement on the project since then. That changed today as we have learned that Fox has set a December 21, 2016 release date for ASSASSIN'S CREED, which will be helmed by Fassbender's MACBETH director, Justin Kurzel.

In the film, a bartender is captured by a large corporation and is forced into a machine, named "The Animus", allowing him to relive the memories of his ancestors -- Most of whom are Assassins -- to retrieve powerful and dangerous artifacts.

ASSASSIN'S CREED is based on the popular Ubisoft video game series of the same name.

I've never played ASSASSIN'S CREED but I am familiar with it thanks to numerous commercials and fans raving about it. I'll certainly be checking it out in 2016 as I'm a big Fassbender fan and this sounds like it has the potential to be a very cool project.
