Assassin's Creed Movie Close To Being Green Lit


According to variety, Ubisoft is close to signing off with Sony Pictures on an Assassin’s Creed movie project.

Apparently the rights to the movie were hotly contested by a number of huge studios, with Sony winning out. It’s expected that Sony will foot the bill on what is expected to be a lavish production.

The default position, when these things are announced, is usually cynicism – you have to protect yourself after years and years of terrible adaptations, but perhaps Assassin’s Creed is the kind of IP that would work well as a movie. There are plenty of interesting themes running through the narrative.

Maybe it’ll be like a modern day Highlander, with a modern day story interspersed with dalliances into different points in history. Yes… please. Make that movie!

There can only be one.
