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.
