Michael Fassbender Assassin's Creed Header Image

20th Century Fox has released the very first image of Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch in the big screen adaptation of Assassin’s Creed. The film is based on the very popular video game of the same name. However, Fassbender’s character is not based on any character from the games, and was created just for the movie. The cinematic character will exist in the same world as his fellow video game characters, furthering the mystery of the rivalry between two ancient secret societies: the Assassins and the Knights Templar.

Check out the first look at Fassbender, plus more on the film as well as a plot synopsis, below.

Not much else can be revealed about the film considering that production hasn’t started yet, though it has been confirmed that cameras will start rolling on Monday. Filming locations include: Malta, London, and Spain. Assassin’s Creed also stars Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises, Macbeth), Michael Kenneth Williams (12 Years a Slave, The Wire), and Ariane Labed (Before Midnight).

Fox has scheduled the movie for a December 21, 2016 release. It is directed by Justin Kurzel who reunites with Fassbender and Cotillard after working with them on Macbeth.

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). The film is directed by Justin Kurzel (Snowtown, Macbeth); produced by New Regency, Ubisoft Motion Pictures, DMC Films and Kennedy/Marshall; co-financed by RatPac Entertainment and Alpha Pictures; and distributed by 20th Century Fox. ASSASSIN’S CREED opens in theaters worldwide on December 21st, 2016.
