Assassin’s Creed Film Given Release Date

20th Century Fox announced several dates for their upcoming film lineup in 2016 and 2017, and of particular note to gamers is the inclusion of the long-awaited Assassin's Creed film.

The title is still tied to Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds, 12 Years a Slave) in the starring role, with Justin Kurzel (Snowtown) slated to direct. The film is slated for a December 21, 2016 release, which will put it one week behind the launch of the newest Star Wars film.

That scheduling sure sounds promising. Then again, it's a video game movie. What could possibly go wrong?
