Assassin’s Creed movie hires new writers to re-draft script

Tuesday, 8th April 2014 08:34 GMT By Dave Cook

Assassin’s Creed movie production appears to be rolling along, as the script is now entering a new draft, courtesy of newly-hired writers Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, the same duo behind Darren Aronofsky’s The General, an upcoming film about the life of George Washington.


That’s according to Deadline, which claims that the pair were brought in to re-write the draft, which was penned by The Wolverine scribe Scott Frank and British playwright Michael Lesslie.

As IGN rightly states, this is nothing to be feared and is common practice in the film industry. It means that production is moving, but we’re yet to find out what game the film is based on, and which Assassin Michael Fassbender will play.

Last we heard the Assassin’s Creed movie is out August 2015.

    I can guarantee this redrafting is because the original script didn’t have enough JASON STATHAM.

    Feel like this is going to be one of those movies that never see’s the light of day.

    @Panthro Compared to the several announced video games to big screen that have already seen the light, right?

    And there is also plenty that don’t, most don’t actually.

    -Kane And Lynch
    -Spy Hunter
    -Alice (That gothic one)
    -Splinter Cell
    -Gears of War
    -God of War
    These movies were to be made but never did and Im sure there is a lot more.

    + The ones that have been made mostly turn out terrible

    -Mario Bros.
    -Max Payne
    -Dead or Alive
    -Prince of Persia
    -Street Fighter
    -House of the Dead
    -Mortal Kombat
    -Alone in the Dark
    -Resident Evil 3 and onwards
    -Lara Croft movies

    Hitman was pretty good even if it did stray a bit too far away from the game.
    Some of the Final Fantasy movies are alright to, spirits within was pretty cool even though when I watched it (I was young) I couldn’t see any link to the games.

    Mortal Kombat: Annihilation that is ^

    Mortal Kombat (1995) was awesome in a really 90′s kung fu movie way, it has aged perfectly.

    @Panthro Yeah thats the trend, a rare moment when a game to movie will succeed successfully.
