The long-in-development Assassin’s Creed movie is finally hitting theaters this December, and the world is collectively clenching their buttocks in anticipation of whether it might actually be good. It takes place in the established Creed universe but stars Michael Fassbender as an original character, Callum Lynch. Regency Enterprises is so confident it’ll be a success that they’ve already started working on the sequel.
Yup, an Assassin’s Creed 2 movie (like a sequel to the first movie, not an adaptation of Assassin’s Creed II) is already under development, with many of the same producers attached: Jean-Julien Baronnet from Ubisoft Motion Pictures, Frank Marshall from Kennedy-Marshall, and Michael Fassbender and Conor McCaughan from DMC Films. It’ll sure be interesting to see how this turns out.
As our own Jackson Murphy pointed out yesterday with the announcement of Square Enix’s Thief movie, it’s not like video game movies have ever turned out poorly, so this show of confidence seems completely founded. Obviously.
You think it’ll be any good?
