First Look At Michael Fassbender In Assassin's Creed

The first image of Michael Fassbender as the lead in the Assassin's Creed movie has been released.

Posted on Yahoo, the image shows Fassbender as Callum Lynch, a character the website says has been created specifically for the movie. The Hollywood adaptation will introduce brand new characters to the same world, instead of depicting familiar figures on the big screen.

Assassin’s Creed stars Academy Award nominee Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past, 12 Years a Slave) and Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises, La Vie en Rose). The film is directed by Justin Kurzel (Snowtown, Macbeth); produced by New Regency, Ubisoft Motion Pictures, DMC Films and Kennedy/Marshall; co-financed by RatPac Entertainment and Alpha Pictures; and distributed by 20th Century Fox. The Assassin’s Creed movie opens in theaters worldwide on December 21st, 2016.  Production is set to begin on Assassin’s Creed tomorrow with photography taking place in Matla, London, and Spain.
