Are you ready for your first look at Michael Fassbender in costume for the Assassin’s Creed movie? Then I suggest you head over to Yahoo right now.
Fassbender will star as Callum Lynch, a man who uses the Animus to experience the life of Aguilar, an ancestor in 15th century Spain. As an Assassin, Aguilar (and Lynch) will battle the Knights Templar in the film. Neither character will be familiar to fans of the games, but Ubisoft plans to incorporate Aguilar (and the events of the film) into the franchise’s sprawling story.
Assassin’s Creed will also star Marion Cotillard, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Ariane Labed. Filming is expected to begin today and the movie should arrive on theaters on December 21, 2016.
