Fox announced today that Assassin’s Creed will hit theaters on December 21, 2016.

The film will star Michael Fassbender and director Justin Kurzel has been tapped to helm the movie.

Both Fassbender and Kurzel previously collaborated on the film, Macbeth.

In the film, a bartender is captured by a large corporation and is forced into a machine, named "The Animus", allowing him to relive the memories of his ancestors -- Most of whom are Assassins -- to retrieve powerful and dangerous artifacts.

Assassin’s Creed is based on the popular Ubisoft video game series of the same name.

2016 is shaping up to be a very busy year for Fassbender. In addition Assassin's Creed, the actor is set to reprise his role as the Master of Magnetism, Magneto in X-Men: Apocalypse which hits theaters May 27, 2016.

    One of the things this has going for it is Ubisoft actually has control of how the film goes. THey have veto power and can make changes and demands.

  1. I hope they don't downgraded the CGI graphics though...
