Michael Fassbender will star in Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed film.

According to Variety, the acclaimed actor has been cast as "the franchise's iconic hooded hero". But of course, the series has featured several hooded heroes, from Altair to Ezio to Connor. If the film sticks closely to the chronology and storyline of the games, it's likely that Fassbender will take the role of Altair or Desmond (or maybe both).

"Michael Fassbender was our first choice," said Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of Paris-based Ubisoft Motion Pictures. "Michael is an extremely smart, talented, versatile and committed actor."

With roles in critically-acclaimed movies like Shame and blockbusters such as X-Men: First Class and Prometheus, Fassbender has quickly established himself as one of the most in-demand actors around, and his casting in the Assassin's Creed movie sends out a strong signal of intent by the recently-founded Ubisoft Motion Pictures. The film will also be produced by Fassbender's own company, DMC Film.

Ubisoft was originally in talks with Sony Pictures to develop the franchise, but negotiations broke down last autumn. Ubisoft has since been developing the property independently to retain greater creative control. It's an approach it's also taking with other key properties, such as Splinter Cell. But once the film has a director and writer attached, the publisher is willing to speak with studios.

"We're open to re-discuss with the key studios once the production package is finalised," Baronnet added. "Whatever the financial model, Ubisoft Motion Pictures will limit its risk investment."

I think there is some potential here, but this film might fall victim to the video game move curse, which is they just straight up suckk. It will be interesting if they are able to pull this off the movie could be very interesting.

All I want for Christmas is a Laker girl :D

it wont be a bad movie and theres 1 reason why and they state so in the article.

They will do it the way its been envisioned since AC part 1 came out. I trust in Ubisoft and Fassbender aka Young Magneto in X Origins was a strong lead. It makes me so excited to see this movie.

Other than the Kanye sample.....this was a great trailer.

Its gonna be a great movie Im sure. Ive been waiting for a long time for this. It was on and off again about a dozen times.

I still wanna know why they didnt just use the story of Altair Ibn-La'Ahad and lead into a sequel/trilogy about Ezio Auditore da Firenze. But the Spanish Inquisition era is dope. I just hope theres a firm relation to the game story line.

It seems like this is all happening at Abstergo at the same time frame Desmond Miles is in the Animus for Altair and Ezio. Which makes sense because in Unity or Rouge they show the Abstergo "shop floor" with hundreds of animus machines for different subjects. But never say who theyre for.

My only problem was the 

"Assassin's Creed" line. 

The Assassins HAVE a Creed... 

You aren't traced back to the Assassin's Creed unless they are referring to the very beginning when the Creed was created.
