According to a recent interview with Creative Screenwriting, screenwriter Scott Frank is in the process of rewriting the much anticipated movie adaptation of the popular video game "Assassin's Creed."
Bleeding Cool first reported on the film rewrite on August 15, 2013, adding that "X-Men: First Class" star Michael Fassbender, known to most fans of the "X-Men" movie franchise as a younger version of the villain Magneto, is attached to star in the "Assassin's Creed" film.
Frank, best known for his work in films like "The Lookout," "Marley & Me" and most recently "The Wolverine" talked to Creative Screenwriting about the challenges of successfully adapting a popular video game into film.
"I’m rewriting Assassin’s Creed right now, and what I love about it is that I’ve never adapted a video game before and it has its own set of challenges. Especially in the world of rewrites, I love trying to do something completely different if I can. That’s how Marley & Me happened. It was a challenge and I loved every minute of it because it was sort of about my own family and I did it for my oldest daughter."
While "Assassin's Creed" the movie is still in its very early stages of development, fans can get their fix in the meantime with the latest installment of the popular gaming franchise "Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag."
"Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag" is due in stores this October.
