Fassbender confirms plans for Assassin's Creed movie

MICHAEL Fassbender has confirmed that work on the script for his silver screen version of popular video game Assassin’s Creed is taking place.

The actor who is currently on a promotional tour in the US for his offbeat comedy movie Frank, revealed to the website IGN: "Nothing has changed. I'm still a part of Assassin's Creed, and we're working on the script as we speak.

“Actually, I'm going to go back and see the writers when I get back to Europe."

Fassbender is producing the film and it is believed that Justin Kurzel, who recently directed him in Macbeth, is also on board.

The Kerryman added that he intends to incorporate new material to the original elements from the game for the film adaptation.

"You know, we absolutely want to respect the game," he said.

"There's so much cool stuff in the game, that we're actually spoiled for choice in terms of what we can use and what we can't, but we also want to bring new elements to it and perhaps our own version of things that already exist in the game."

"But we're definitely making a feature film, and we're approaching it as a feature film, as opposed to approaching it as a video game.

"So I'm really excited about it, and we're working very hard to make sure that we've got the best and most exciting, original package."

Assassin's Creed is due to be released in August 2015
