Over the weekend it was revealed, even with the first Assassin’s Creed movie not releasing until this December, plans are already being arranged for its sequel. While the fact New Regency would like to turn Assassin’s Creed into a long running film franchise is not surprising, the fact they are already signing on producers for the second film is.
According to a report from The Tracking Board, Jean-Julien Baronnet from Ubisoft Motion Pictures, Frank Marshall through his Kennedy-Marshall Company, along with Michael Fassbender and Conor McCaughan through their own label, DMC Films, have already been signed on to produce the sequel. Fassbender’s role all but confirms he will also be returning as the sequel’s lead.
Set to release Decemeber 21st, the Assassin’s Creed film will follow Fassbender as Callum Lynch, a man found to be a descendant of the Assassins. Taking cues from the games, Lynch is taken to Abstergo, where he is connected to the animus. He then relives the memories of his 15th century Spanish ancestor.
The movie finished filming this past January, while all the way back in October Fassbender said he would be interested in seeing a sequel made.
