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

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.
