For those of you hoping that the new Assassin’s Creed movie would be identical to the games, then think again as it looks like most of the movie will be based in the modern day, not in the Spanish Inquisition.
The Assassin’s Creed movie apparently has a split of about 65% modern day footage, and 35% scenes from the past. Although the games have featured both present day and past settings, the games have had players mostly play in the historical settings with just a small portion of the game in the modern day.
Speaking to IGN, executive producer Pat Crowley revealed the percentage split, which may have some fans who hoped for a historical and an Assassin focused romp a little upset.
According to an interview with Michael Fassbender, the movie’s lead actor, a little while back: “There are certain things that we absolutely want to respect in the game,” he said. “But we also want to bring new elements to the game […] This isn’t a video game that we’re making. We’re trying to make a cinematic experience, so there are new things that we have to introduce.”
The Assassin’s Creed movie launches in theatres this December.
