Will this upcoming film breathe new life to these type of video game adaptions? Many past game adaptations have struggled to be a major breakthrough success at the box office for this genre of film. Movie makers are anxious to see if gamers and action-loving-movie-goers will unite, revel about the release and find themselves entertained by the upcoming big-screen release of the Assassin’s Creed Movie. This movie will feature an original story and characters, rather than directly adapting the game’s storyline.
Assassin’s Creed is the first movie to be produced by Ubisoft Motion Pictures, the vibrant new film branch of Ubisoft, in collaboration with Regency Pictures. UMP CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet has also confirmed that the film adaptation will not be a direct adaptation of any of the games. The new Assassin’s Creed film will take place in Spain and focus on the infamous Inquisition led by Tomas de Torquemada.
