The very popular video game, Assassin’s Creed looks like it is finally getting the big screen treatment, thanks to a commitment from Sony.  Variety reports the studio is getting close to nailing down a deal to adapt the game.

It looks like Ubisoft wants to maintain creative control over the projects, with Sony serving only as a key distributor in the overall scheme of things.  Still, knowing that the game has received rave reviews and there is a large following for the historical action game, if done right, Sony could bring in the big bucks.

Property, developed by Ubisoft Montreal, revolves around a bartender named Desmond Miles who is captured by a secret corporation called Abstergo Industries and forced to go back in time to various historical periods like the Renaissance and Crusades to relieve the memories of his ancestors — all assassins — in order to recover ancient artifacts. New game is set in 16th century Constantinople.

Until a deal is reached, don’t expect an announcement on a release date in the next year.

    Of all video games, I can see this one getting the movie treatment. It’s got a Twelve Monkeys vibe mixed with a lot of action. The game already plays like a movie and I look forward to seeing what they can do if they get a decent budget.
