Assassin’s Creed targets summer of 2015

May 18th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

With Star Wars: Episode VII and The Avengers 2 already slated for the summer of 2015, it was already going to be an epic summer. But now there’s another killer addition to that Summer. Assassin’s Creed, based on the popular Ubisoft video game series, will hit theaters on May 22, 2015. 20th Century Fox attached to the project, which stars Michael Fassbender as Desmond Miles, the descendant of a long line of assassins who can relive the memories of his ancestors via a machine called the Animus. No word yet on which of Desmond assassin ancestors he would play also.

Michael Lesslieis writing the screenplay. It has no director yet, but since it’s only 2 years away I imagine that will change soon enough. Is there anyone you want to see at the helm of this potential franchise?
