Just yesterday some news came out regarding the planned Assassin’s Creed movie being produced by New Regency and 20th Century Fox. The movie based off of the popular and successful video game was officially given a December 21, 2016 release date, one week after the first planned Star Wars spin-off. The movie has been greenlit for awhile now but aside from knowing Michael Fassbender would star and Justin Kurzel would direct, nothing else has been announced.
More news has been released today that Marion Cotillard will be joining the motion picture to star alongside of Fassbender, which is funny because the two stars worked together on the MacBeth adaptation that is also directed by Kurzel. There have been no official announcements of which character she will be playing, but so far the film has made two great casting decisions.
