Prometheus star Michael Fassbender states that the Assassin's Creed film, which is he tabbed to play the lead Altair, is "definitely happening."
In an interview with Daily Beast, Fassbender enthused, "That's definitely happening. We're just developing the script at the moment. I'd heard of it but had never played the game. I don't have a video game player ... that's not what they're called. I met up with the guys from Ubisoft and they told me the story behind it, and I thought it was very interesting — the idea of reliving memories."
Fassbender wasto play the lead by Ubisoft back in July 2012; he was the publisher's first choice.
