Michael Fassbender fronted Assassin’s Creed movie will begin filming in September, actor reveals
The upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie which has just recently entered production, will begin principle photography in September this year, reveals lead actor Michael Fassbender. The movie has been through its fair share of ons and offs and looks to finally be making some headway.
Speaking with ComingSoon.net, Fassbender (Inglorious Basterds) revealed that it’s been a long production process as they want to get things right, but added that it’ll begin filming in September this year.
“You say it’s a long time but what I’ve found — it’s all new to me but starting to develop scripts and work on them, they take time,” he said in response to the movie’s delays. “It just takes time to get a good story together and we really want to do it right. It’s exciting. It’s going to start this year, we’ll be filming in September.”
He also added that due to the franchises vastness and complexity it was difficult for them to decide which parts to add into the movie.
“… trying to translate that to an audience, you have to pick key things,” he said. “So yes, that is part of it, getting through the density of it and paring down and engaging a simple story.”
Ubisoft, who’s also heavily involved with the movie, said that the flick is set for a December 21, 2016 release. This is part of a partnership Ubisoft Motion Pictures announced with New Regency and distributor Twentieth Century Fox in October 2012.
