Ubisoft announced today that they are partnering with New Regency on the forthcoming Assassin's Creed film. As of now, the screenplay is being "fast tracked," following the recent announcement of actor Michael Fassbender being involved with the project.
Ubisoft will develop the film in collaboration with New Regency, though they say that they will be able to "maintain control of key elements of the movie's creative direction."
Jean-Julien Baronnet, chief executive officer at Ubisoft Motion Pictures:
They sound pretty serious about keeping series fans happy.
