We did promise more news on the Assassin's Creed movie when it hits, and today that has happened. The movie has just received a massive injection of awesomeness in the form of Michael Fassbender in the leading role.

Fassbender has signed on not only for the leading role, but as a co-producer. Fassbender will star as Desmond Miles, who explores the lives of his assassin ancestors through the Animus machine, letting him experience the time periods of the Crusades, the Renaissance, and in the upcoming third outing of the game, the American Revolution.

 

Fassbender is known for his roles in X-Men: First Class as Magneto, and recently in Prometheus, and the Quentin Tarantino-directed Inglourious Basterds. There's no details on the rest of the cast, or a release date, but you shouldn't expect the movie for another 2-3 years at least.
