Michael Fassbender On ‘Assassin’s Creed’ to Film, Including Badass Women

Michael Fassbender is not only the star of Assassin’s Creed, he is also the movie’s producer who obtained the film rights from Ubisoft. For the adaptation, Fassbender introduced aboard his director (Justin Kurzel) and co-star (Marion Cotillard) from the gritty adaptation of Macbeth, in which he held the titular role. Thus, Fassbender and I discussed the Shakespearian commonalities between the game and the film, such as secret societies and tragedy through bloodlines.

Instead of playing Desmond from the video games, this adaptation concentrates on Cal (Fassbender) a criminal who is saved a lethal injection to go through some tests on criminal behavior through his family bloodlines. The tests are run by Sofia (Cotillard), a researcher who hopes to eradicate violence by deciphering a code in the apple from Eden, of which Cal’s Fifteenth century ancestor was the last known person to have held.

Moreover to talking Shakespeare in the interview, Fassbender also discussed about the significance of having Cotillard’s role be written for a female who does not appear in the games, how far they are along with a follow up and he also talks a line of dialogue about “freedom in 2016.”

“For ages, we were like, ‘What are we going to do with the Animus?'” Fassbender said. “At one point I was thinking of this concept where we’d be in a liquid container, almost like a womb. But what the guys came up with is amazing. Ubisoft are discussing about placing it in their future games.”

GameSpot joined a Ubisoft demonstration, at which CEO Yves Guillemot said that if the movie does well, the company’s future business in film could carry in a lot of money and allow it to reuse movie figures and material in its games.

“It can become, in numerous methods, something exciting for the company that pushes brands to become better known, create new figures that we can reuse in games,” Guillemot said. “Content for the IP that is created for the films can be used in games. It is not only the money that we make because it’s a film that is important, it is that we can discover new worlds and build new figures and backgrounds. All the results later on can be reused, all that can certainly create sure we can enhance the standard of our games.”

In a latest interview with Collider, Fassbender talked about the need to strike a stability between being trustworthy to the game & providing viewers something new. “We really want to regard the game and the components to it, but we also desired to come up with our own factor,” he said. “And a very important factor I’ve kind of discovered from doing the franchises like X-Men is that viewers, I think, want to be surprised and to see new components of what they already know, and different takes on it.

“Like I said, we’re really improving the very primary components of the game, but we wished to bring something new to it as well, so that’s why we have these new main figures.”
