The Assassin's Creed movie is getting some backstage class by tapping English playwright Michael Lesslie to adapt the screenplay. Lesslie's previous writing work includes Prince of Denmark
, which was performed at the National Theatre in 2012, short films such as Skirt
, and an acclaimed adaptation of the memoir War Reporting for Cowards
Michael Fassbender, recently known as Magneto in X-Men: First Class
and the robot David in Prometheus
, is set to star in and co-produce
the Assassin's Creed film. In October, Ubisoft Motion Pictures tagged New Regency
as a partner on the movie. We're pretty shocked at all the public information about this film; for some reason, we assumed the whole thing would be more stealthy.
