Madrid, Dec 15 (IANS) The first few images of actor Michael Fassbender from the sets of “Assassin’s Creed” in an undisclosed location in Spain, where the movie is being filmed, has surfaced online.
Although the photographs are not clear and a little bit blurry, Fassbender can be seen walking around the desolate and dirty set in the assassin attire of his character Callum Lynch from the film adaption of the famous video game series, reports aceshowbiz.com.
The upcoming movie is said to feature an original storyline which seems to be different from the video games. However, there is still a chance that some characters from the game may appear in the movie.
In “Assassin’s Creed”, Lynch experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories.
He later finds out that he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day.
The movie also stars Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Ariane Labed and Michael K. Williams.
Directed by Justin Kurzel, the film is slated for a December 21 release in US next year.
