Not much news has been released about the upcoming movie adaptation of the popular video game franchise, Assassin’s Creed, ever since we learned that Michael Fassbender would be producing and starring in the project. But now, according to The Playlist, the movie has finally found its financing and a studio to call home.
The site is reporting that New Regency will be putting up the money, along with Ubisoft, for the movie, while 20th Century Fox has agreed to distribute it. Ubisoft head Jean-Julien Baronnet had this to say about the decision:
Ubisoft chose to partner with New Regency because they are a talent- and filmmaker-driven company, with the same independent and creative mindset that we have at Ubisoft Motion Pictures. Bringing aboard New Regency’s renowned production and distribution expertise while maintaining our own creative and financial flexibility ensures that Assassin’s Creed will be a high-quality film that respects the lore and fans of the video game franchise.
We’ll have more information on this project as it becomes available.
