Up-and-coming British writer Michael Lesslie has been brought on board to pen the big screen adaptation of Assassin’s Creed, The Hollywood Reporter has said.

Ubisoft Motion Pictures and New Regency have appointed Lessli, who is an acclaimed English playwright who wrote “Prince of Denmark,” which was performed at the National Theatre in 2012.

No word yet on a director however Michael Fassbender will star in and produce the film.

Assassin’s Creed “centers on a bartender who is captured by a secret corporation and sent back in time to relive the memories of his ancestors — all of them assassins — and retrieve ancient artifacts”.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
