Fox sets a Date for Assassin's Creed Film: August 7, 2015

20th Century Fox made a number of announcements today for a number of major film productions to be released come 2014 and 2015 which, not surprisingly, includes the upcoming Assassin's Creed film which will also star Michael Fassbender in the leading role. It is worthy to note than Fassbender once said that he has no experience in the Assassin's Creed or recent video gaming for that matter. As such, the Destructoid author of this article expresses his doubt on how the film will stand vis-a-vis the published games. (Assassin's Creed, Industry, Michael Fassbender, Ubisoft)

...and it will suck

Mostly because it won't follow the source material, will try to do something different and then will end up being nothing like the games.

Seriously the game has a good plot for a film, like other video games you just need a way to condense the story and fill in the gameplay parts to smoothly move the story along

Agreed, cause every other movie adaption of a videogame was a huge success.:p

Assassin's Creed: Lineage was pretty good. Isn't this being done by that same studio?

Assassin's Creed has such a comprehensive intelligent plotline; putting it into a media that leans entirely on story is a great move.

Fox isn't involved with AC. It's only Ubisoft Studios and New Regency. Ubisoft has retained all creative rights so there won't be any fiddling with the franchise.
