Michael Fassbender To Star In Assassin’s Creed Film

Our good buddies at PlayStation Lifestyle spotted a report by Variety that pegs Prometheus and X-Men: First Class lead Michael Fassbender for a high-profile role in the inevitable Assassin's Creed movie. In an interview with Ubisoft Motion Pictures' Jean-Julien Baronnet told Variety:

Michael Fassbender was our first choice [to play the franchise's iconic hooded hero. Michael is an extremely smart, talented, versatile and committed actor.

He also enjoys spanking Keira Knightley! This is the latest development in the Assassin's Creed film project following the falling out Sony Pictures and Ubisoft had during negotiations to make the film together.

Alright, so Fassbender is playing an Assassin. Who'll play Da Vinci and who'll play Lucy (ohnosadface.jpg)?
