In an interview with EW Magazine, Assassin’s Creed movie star Michael Fassbender told the publication that he had never played the original video game before joining the franchise:

“I hadn’t played it before these guys approached me. I’ve played it since [being offered the job]mainly to get an idea of the physicality of the character. We’re striving to find something special. We believe the whole concept around it is special and want to service that the best we can. The fans are really passionate: very specific and they expect accuracy and historical detail. We’re really trying to capitalize and feed on and enjoy the fun element. We’re working hard to make this something special.”


Assassin’s Creed hits theaters on December 21st, 2016.

  1. It doesn’t surprise me since there are just SO MANY games out there these days. The only thing about it that bothers me since I saw something about it yesterday were some of the people saying he wouldn’t be able to pull off the character since he’s “not a fan”. I just find statements like that to be incredibly silly and shortsighted. A bunch of other actors in movies or TV shows based on games, comics and novels might have been fans of the genre or medium, but never played or read the basis of their particular roles before being cast and they still went on to give a phenomenal performance.
