DMC Film partner Conor McCaughan will also serve as a co-producer on this sci-fi action adventure revolving around a bartender who learns that his ancestors were trained assassins. He is kidnapped by a group tied to the secret society Knights Templar, and is forced to travel through time collecting various historical artifacts to be used for a higher purpose.
Assassin's Creed is the most high profile project currently with Michael Fassbender's DMC Film. This big screen adaptation was originally set up through Sony Pictures, but the project was put on hold by Ubisoft. It may still be distributed by Sony when it is completed, with a projected release date of 2014.
The Assassin's Creed video game franchise has moved over 30 million units for Ubisoft since its 2007 debut. The next installment of the game, its third, is expected to hit stores this October. It will take place during the American Revolution. The first two games carried through the Crusades and the Renaissance era. It is not yet known which chapter of this saga will kick off the theatrical franchise, if all three time periods will be visited, or if Assassin's Creed will head to new, uncharted points of time in our human history.
