The extremely popular video game, "Assassin's Creed", will soon hit the cinemas and fans are just enormously joyful.
Assassin's Creed is Ubisoft's bestselling role playing video game with already nine versions. The video game is stirred from Vladimir Bartol's novel, Alamut and also inspired from the equally popular game, Prince of Persia.
The game is primarily based on real historical events reimagined in a video game. It is about the battle between the controlling Templars and the freedom-loving Assassins.
Assassin's Creed is extremely popular selling a total of 73 million units as of April 2014. The video game is available in almost all major game consoles.
And soon enough, it will be a blockbuster movie.
"Assassin's Creed" movie will be inspired by the video game but will have an entirely new story. The movie will be firs set in the present 21st century and will shift to the 15th century Spanish era.
Michael Fassbender plays as both the modern-day Callum Lynch and the Assassin Aguilar. These are the main characters of the new "Assassin's Creed" movie. The actor is better known as Magneto in the X-men prequel movies.
Surprisingly, the Irish-German actor is also producing the film.
Recently it is reported that Michael and co-star Marion Cotillard have been re-shooting some scenes for the movie. This is to guarantee that the movie will be as perfect as possible.
New reports suggest that the historical scenes of "Assassin's Creed" movie will all be in Spanish. This is the final direction although the video game itself, from which the movie is made, has a strange accent.
The movie director apparently wants the movie to be more than just combats.
Director Justin Kurzel said that the Spanish language makes the movie more exotic and rich. The director also added that the company producing the film, New Regency, approves of it.
Assassin's Creed will hit the cinemas on December 21, 2016.
