Producer Frank Marshall boards <strong><em>Assassin's Creed</em></strong>
Frank Marshall has signed on to produce the Assassin's Creed adaptation for New Regency and Ubisoft. The news comes just one day after producer Basil Iwanyk joined another New Regency/Ubisoft video game project, Splinter Cell.

Michael Fassbender is attached to star in Assassin's Creed, which follows the adventures of a bartender who learns he comes from a long line of assassins. He is forced by a corporation to hunt down precious artifacts, while using a device that gives him all the skills and memories of his ancestors.

We reported in January that Michael Lesslie is writing the screenplay, although a director has still not been attached yet. Frank Marshall is producing alongside Ubisoft's Eli Richbourg, Michael Fassbender, and his producing partner Conor McCaughan. No production schedule was given.

Frank Marshall most recently produced The Bourne Legacy and War Horse, and has upcoming projects such as Jurassic Park IV and Indiana Jones 5 on his slate.
