‘Assassin’s Creed’: First Look at Michael Fassbender’s Adaptation of Popular Videogame

The first official photo from “Assassin’s Creed,” starring and produced by Michael Fassbender, has been released.

Based on the wildly popular collection of videogames, New Regency’s live-action “Assassin’s Creed” is directed by Justin Kurzel and released through Fox.

Fassbender, in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, said he’s been playing the videogame for months.

“I’ve played it since mainly to get an idea of the physicality of the character,” he said. “We believe the whole concept around it is special and want to service that the best we can. The fans are really passionate: very specific and they expect accuracy and historical detail. We’re really trying to capitalize and feed on and enjoy the fun element. We’re working hard to make this something special.”

Master of None

Marion Cotillard stars alongside Fassbender, in addition to Michael Kenneth Williams and Ariane Labed, also pictured in the new photo. Shooting on the pic recently began in Malta, London and Spain.

“Assassin’s Creed” is co-financed by RatPac and Alpha Pictures. Producers are Frank Marshall, Arnon Milchan, Jean-Julien Baronnet, Conor McCaughan, Fassbender and Pat Crowley. Ubisoft Motion Pictures developed the project and is producing with New Regency.

“Assassin’s Creed” hits theaters Dec. 21, 2016.
