'Assassin's Creed' movie may be coming sooner rather than later

By Matthew Dougherty,

On the heels of the release of Assassin’s Creed III a few short weeks ago, news is coming that the film adaptation may hit theaters much sooner than expected.

According to GamesIndustry, Geoffrey Sardin, Ubisoft’s chief sales and marketing officer said that there is a movie coming in the next year.

That would mean that the film should be starting production any minute now.

IGN notes that Sardin may have meant the financial year, which would run into part of 2014. But if not, then Assassin’s Creed could be hitting theaters sometime in 2013.

The adaptation stars Michael Fassbender.

The plot of the games involves an assassin in the present reliving the memories of assassins from the past. The original game focused on the Crusades. The sequel, and two other games outside of the official series Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, took place in Renaissance Italy. The most recent outing is set during the Revolutionary War.

New Regency will finance and distribute the film.
