However it seems Sony Pictures is the frontrunner and is 'close' to nailing an agreement. Ubisoft Motion Pictures is handling the negotiations for the IP.
The creative control of the IP will likely remain under the right reins of Ubisoft who are keen to build a movie portfolio of their greatest and most successful videogame franchises. Hopefully the mega blockbuster selling Assassin's Creed will be done justice.
Are Sony Pictures a good fit for the Assassin-Templar scuffle through time?
