Ubisoft have partnered with New Regency to produce a film based upon their globally successful Assassin’s Creed franchise, the publisher has announced.

Completion of the screenplay is being “fast tracked,” with Michael Fassbender having recently been confirmed as being involved with the project.

“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,” explained Jean-Julien Baronnet, chief executive officer 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.”
