The wonderful Michael Fassbender has been attached to star and produce in the video-game adaptation "Assassin's Creed" for a couple of years now. The project has been developing at a rather slow pace but now it appears to have gained some momentum. Justin Kurzel, who directed Fassbender in "Macbeth", is now in talks to helm the production.

Daniel Espinosa, who previously helmed the dramatic thriller "Safe House", was previously in talks to direct. A few other names like Gareth Evans have been discussed but nothing has come to fruition. Kurzel is the first name that has emerged in some time that seems to really be in conversation to direct.

The script was penned by playwright Michael Lesslie with rewrites conducted by screenwriter Scott Frank ("Minority Report"). Fassbender will play Desmond Miles in the film. Miles is a bartender kidnapped by a secret corporation and sent back in time via the memories of his assassin ancestors, with the job of tracking down ancient artifacts. It will be interesting to see how they make this colorful story come to life on the big-screen.

    I can see him retiring Wolverine after W3 but as stated - HJ is still RIPPED. He does some serious workouts to play Logan and has the body to prove it. If they cast someone younger to play him after W3 then they had better search long and hard because he is one tough act to follow as Logan!

    okay, i took the bait of the Teaser for the new Bond movie, and I am hooked. Bond seems to have a secret link to Spectre, This will be interesting. I love the way the new recycling of Bond stories have developed from the first Craig adaptation and reinventing of the role. Guess I am onboard to continue to be a person that has never missed a Bond movie. From when I first saw Dr. No and From Russia With Love on a double feature in the 60's as a teenager I have been hooked and still am.
