Assassin’s Creed Open Casting Call for Female Supporting Roles
Assassin’s Creed is making the leap from an action-adventure video game to a live-action Sci-Fi feature film. The feature film is set to begin production this summer in London, England and will be directed by Justin Kurzel. Kurzel has just wrapped filming on the live-action adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
The Assassin’s Creed game series centers on the rivalry between two ancient secret societies: The Assassins and The Knights Templar. The film will follow the game’s central character, Desmond Miles. Desmond is a bartender who is abducted by a company called “Abstergo Industries.” Abstergo wants to explore Desmond’s mind in order to access the memories of his ancestor, Altair Ibn La’Ahad, so they can recover a sacred artifact.
The Tentative Cast:
Michael Fassbender has been cast to portray Desmond Miles. Fassbender is quite the busy man; he has recently finished filming the Steve Jobs Biopic in which he portrays Jobs. He is currently filming X-Men: Apocalypse in which he portrays Erik Lensherr/Magneto. He has also just completed filming with Justin Kurzel on the film Macbeth, in which he portrays the Duke of Scotland.
Also seeing Justin Kurzel for a second round of filming this year is Marion Cotillard. Her character in Assassin’s Creed is yet to be revealed. Cotillard portrays Lady Macbeth in the upcoming live-action adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
