Renowned actor and human/shark hybrid Michael Fassbender is attached to produce the upcoming Assassin's Creed movie. Not only that, he'll also take the "lead" role as time-simulating killer-in-training Desmond Miles. 

It's going to be pretty interesting to see a game with such a convoluted premise become a movie. I'm not sure how well the concept will translate to the cinema screen, but Fassbender's attachment is always a nice way to kick things off. 

In any case, Ubisoft is taking this one seriously. It wants a writer and director before it negotiates with a studio, and it'll be using its internal studios to save production costs on visual effects. Sony was originally primed to get the rights, but talks are currently on hold. 

I'll make your movie, Ubisoft. We all know it's going to be in 3D and thus be an hour of knives flung at a camera in slow-motion. I can do that for fifty bucks.
