Michael Fassbender will return as ‘Assassin’s Creed’ sequel in the works

While the first movie doesn’t arrive until December, but it seems Ubisoft and New Regency are confident that they have a hit on their hands with the Assassin’s Creed movie, as The Tracking Board is reporting that a sequel is already in development with Michael Fassbender once again on board to star and produce.

Moreover, Den of Geek notes that the film “comes at a point where the video game series that it’s based on is actually struggling a bit. For the past few years, Assassin’s Creed games have been released annually. Yet following the middling reception for the last couple of adventures, the decision has been made to skip this year, and possibly move away from an annual Assassin’s Creed game release altogether. The films may be helping in the intervening years, then….”

Synopsis: Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day.

The film reunites Fassbender (Prometheus, new X-Men films) with Macbeth director Justin Kurzel and co-star Marion Cotillard (Inception, Dark Knight Rises), while the cast also includes Michael K. Williams (Ghostbusters), Jeremy Irons (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Brendan Gleeson (Calvary, Braveheart and Mad-Eye Moody in the Harry Potter films), Callum Turner (Frankenstein) and Greek actress Ariane Labed (The Lobster).

Assassin’s Creed is set for release on December 21st 2016.
