Wow. This is a big one. Potentially.
A Hollywood production for an Assassin’s Creed Movie.
At least for everyone who played the video-game because he dreamt of having Altaïr’s strength or Ezio’s stamina in real life, this is interesting news.
Once we figured, that people out of our scene like Michael “Frosti” Zernow are working on the game, we knew Ubisoft was doing a good job potentially hiring the right people.
The storyline of the Assassin’s Creed movie according to 20th Century Fox:
“Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day”
The Assassin’s Creed Movie will take place in the same universe as the game. Michael Fassbender also stated on IGN:
“You know, we absolutely want to respect the game. There’s so much cool stuff in the game that we’re actually spoiled for choice in terms of what we can use and what we can’t, but we also want to bring new elements to it and perhaps our own version of things that already exist in the game.”
Michael Fassbender who starred in movies like X-Men as Magneto – or in the latest Steve Jobs movie as the 20-year-old as well as the 43-year-old Steve Jobs,
is apparently learning Parkour in preparation for the new Hollywood adaption of the video-game-series – or is he?
“I’ve learned how to roly poly, tumble turn. Stuff you can do in everyday life. Like cartwheels. No — just basic fight choreography stuff. I did some horse stuff today. So stuff like that.”
At this stage we are not sure weather we’re excited to watch Parkour getting a bit more exposure on Hollywood screens – and will just cheer for awesome stunts – or if games should stay games and movies should stay movies.
At least lines like these make us hope for some good action:
“Finally, and most fun, was a shot just outside the church. The lead b—– in black was hanging from a frame, suspended from a crane, by his hands and feet. He then drops to his arms and drops into the back end of a hay cart, landing more or less on his feet — I suspect this was a ‘controlled’ fall or jump from the roof of the church.
It was great to watch and it looked like it had gone horribly wrong, shattering the back end of the cart — almost missing it completely. It was only the total lack of reaction from the assembled crew that gave the game away!”
Well.. since we can’t promise waiting for the movie itself is worthwhile, we’re at least hoping for some good behind-the-scenes material.
In all this, at least one thing is certain:
The behind-the-scenes clips are never going to be as good as this one of the 5-Gum-Commercial with Daniel Ilabaca
Just in case you didn’t get your head into the game yet, maybe it will be the better choice to buy the latest version “Assassin’s Creed Syndicate” and dwell in the 18th century London until the Assassin’s Creed Movie hits the screens on December 21st 2016.
