The planned movie adaptation of Assassin’s Creed which starts filming this September finally has a new cast member. According to Variety, Michael K. Williams (The Wire, Boardwalk Empire) will be joining Michael Fassbender (Prometheus, X-Men: Days of Future’s Past) as part of the main cast.
Additionally, while the movie adaptation of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed franchise hasn’t even hit cinemas yet, it seems fans can expect more than one Assassin’s Creed movie. Variety’s sources are claiming that New Regency and Ubisoft are planning to make at least one more Assassin’s Creed flick, with Williams’ character said to have a “major stake in the franchise.” Not only that, but Williams is even reported to have a co-starring role alongside Fassbender in the sequel.
Well, I guess that means they both live through the first film, then, no?
While New Regency nor Ubisoft have confirmed Williams’ involvement, the actor kind of confirmed the news with a few retweets on Twitter.
Set to hit theaters in December 2016, the Assassin’s Creed film is being directed by Justin Kurzel, with the latest script rewrite being handled by Exodus: Gods and Kings writers Adam Cooper and Bill Collage.
Are you excited to see this or should Ubisoft save the money and use it for a new IP instead?
