Michael Fassbender Calls Assassins Creed "Something Special"
We all know that films based on video games don't have a great track record, however, most of those adaptations didn't have a highly-acclaimed actor starring in them like Assassin' Creed does with two-time Oscar-nominated actor Michael Fassbender. Several days ago, Assassin' Creed wrapped principal photography and Fassbender is quite pleased with how it turned out.
"It was great," he told the Wall Street Journal. "It was a huge learning experience. To be a producer on it as well was very educational. I think we've got something special. I think we've done something original in this genre."
And what can he share about his Callum Lynch role? "He is an outsider," he revealed. "He's been institutionalized from his early teens. He's a little bit of a lost soul of sorts. He starts to identify [his] lineage and where he comes from in a way."
Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day. 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).
Assassin's Creed opens in theaters worldwide on December 21st, 2016.
