Michael Fassbender Hadn’t Played Assassin’s Creed Before Signing on to the Movie

Michael Fassbender, who is playing the role of Assassin Callum Lynch in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie, has revealed that he had never played any of the video games from the franchise before signing on to the movie. However, he did play them after being offered the role in order to better understand his character’s physicality. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Fassbender said:

I hadn’t played it before these guys approached me. I’ve played it since [being offered the job] mainly to get an idea of the physicality of the character. We’re striving to find something special. We believe the whole concept around it is special and want to service that the best we can. The fans are really passionate: very specific and they expect accuracy and historical detail. We’re really trying to capitalize and feed on and enjoy the fun element. We’re working hard to make this something special.

Entertainment Weekly also shared a photo from the movie set, which you can check out below.
