Ever since the first Assassin’s Creed game came out, it was obvious it would translate well into an action movie. It looks like there will indeed be an Assassin’s Creed film, and it will be produced by and starring Michael Fassbender.
Not much else yet, but this is exciting as is.
With Brazilian director Jose Padilha working on assembling his team for the remake of Robocop, the main actor at the top of his list to fill Peter Weller’s robo-shoes is Michael Fassbender, whom you may remember most recently as Magneto in X-Men: First Class. It’s a great casting choice, and it looks like Padilha is serious about his Robocop to not just make it another loud, mindless 21st century action film.
