While the movie versions of both Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell have yet to hit theaters, it seems the US production company behind the films, New Regency, are already eyeing movie sequels for both.
This was revealed by Asian film distributor and movie production company Catchplay’s Daphne Yang who mentioned, “They are both adaptations of successful Ubisoft games and would make ideal sequels.”
Yang heads Catchplay which co-financed the two films as part of a three-picture deal with New Regency (the other film was The Revenant). While it’s not a done deal just yet, don’t be shocked if we see more Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell in theaters provided the debut films prove to be profitable enough.
The Assassin’s Creed movie is set to hit theaters this December 21 and stars Michael Fassbender (Prometheus), Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises), Jeremy Irons (Batman v Superman) and is directed by Justin Kurzel; while Splinter Cell is targeted to be out sometime in 2017 and will be directed by Doug Liman (Bourne) and stars Tom Hardy (Inception).
Do you think sequels to both films will happen? More importantly, will you watch Assassin’s Creed when it hits the silver screen later this year?
