Sony Pictures is in final discussions to distribute an adaptation of the Assassin's Creed video game. We reported back in May that the video game company Ubisoft, which developed the Assassin's Creed game, is planning on making 3D movies based on Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell, and Ghost Recon.

Assassin's Creed centers on a bartender named Desmond Miles, who is kidnapped by Abstergo Industries and forced to travel back through time for secret missions. He must recover ancient artifacts from his ancestors, after learning that he comes from a long line of assassins.

The first Assassin's Creed game was sold in 2007, which has spawned three sequels, the latest of which, Assassins Creed: Revelations, will be available November 15. Over 30 million games have been sold since the franchise first debuted.

No writer or director is attached to Assassin's Creed yet.
