I think it could make for a great movie.
I think there will be too many chefs and it will turn out like crap or even worse, it will be watered down like Wanted was and that was even more of a disappointment.
Michael Fassbender will star in and co-produce "Assassin's Creed," the bigscreen adaptation of Ubisoft's videogame franchise, through his DMC Film.
While Fassbender's profile has risen with roles in "X-Men: First Class," "Shame," "Haywire," "Prometheus," and will next be seen in "The Counselor" and "Twelve Years a Slave," thesp also has spent the past year developing films with Conor McCaughan. Together, they produced the short "Pitch Black Heist."
"Assassin's Creed" is the duo's most high-profile project, given that the game is Ubisoft's biggest franchise, selling over 30 million units since 2007. A third "Assassin's Creed" game bows Oct. 30 and is set during the American Revolution. First two take place during the Crusades and Renaissance.
Plot revolves around a man who learns his ancestors were trained assassins after he is kidnapped by a secret org with ties to the Knights Templar, and sent back in time to retrieve historical artifacts.
"Michael Fassbender was our first choice" to play the franchise's iconic hooded hero, said Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of Paris-based Ubisoft Motion Pictures. "Michael (Fassbender) is an extremely smart, talented, versatile and committed actor."

Agreed on both counts.
I want to believe but I know better.
This game has a perfect plot for a movie -- and as a Hollywood movie a lot of cool future-tech and effects to help dazzle people in to seeing it.

If a movie came out with AC2's story, it would be rightfully derided as a historically terrible movie. But it gets a pass because it's a game. Which is fine.
We have much, much higher standards for movies than we do for games. The 10th percentile of movie stories is better than the 90th percentile of game stories. That might be exaggerating, but not by much.
I dont know if it will be good. It just has a story easily adapted to a movie. I like the genetic history/memory angle of series and the technology and effects are neat.

I've seen bits and pieces of the games...not sure of the plot, but it seems as if modern people relive assassin shit in the past or whatever via technology. Is that right? If so, that sounds like a stupid plot for a movie, unless they just leave out the modern stuff and just focus on the past.
I like Fassbender and all, so hopefully this won't suck.

It is a dumb plot.
Future people using technology to terminate other people in the past.
