Netflix will bring Assassin’s Creed to live-action, a second chance after the generally unpopular Michael Fassbender film in 2016. The live-action series is based on Ubisoft’s long-running video game franchise, which began in 2007 with its first episode of the same name. Ubisoft announced this, along with animation and anime adjustments, under a contract with Netflix.
Ubisoft did that announcement on his website yesterday. Jason Altman, director of Ubisoft Film & Television – Los Angeles, and Danielle Kreinik, director of television development, Ubisoft Film and Television, will serve as executive producers.
“For over 10 years, millions of fans around the world have helped build the Assassin’s Creed brand into a legendary franchise,” said Altman. He did not provide any further details on how the series will be split or when it is expected to arrive on the streaming platform. Given that Ubisoft is currently looking for a showrunner for the live-action series, it may take a while for the project to get into production. Speculation about the occupation has not yet started either.
It’s not clear whether the new series will be recorded after Kurzel’s Assassin’s Creed film adaptation or whether it will trace its roots back to the beginning of the gaming franchise. A new Assassin’s Creed series should also give its complex plot – which has the gravity of a believable story – a little more breathing space than the film could afford in 2 hours and 20 minutes.
Fassbender played the dual roles of Callum Lynch, a 21st-century death row inmate, and Aguilar de Nehra, an assassin from the time of the Spanish Inquisition in 1478, in the 2016 film. The film differs from the original plot for which it was created the game title by giving it a contemporary context and in the end it is largely consumed by it.
Like any other philosophical study of the concept of free will, Assassin’s Creed presents the duality of life in good and bad. It revolves around a centuries-old conflict between two secret societies: the Assassin Brotherhood, led by de Nehra, and their sworn enemy, the Templars. But unlike John Milton sees free will and the loss of it in his epic poem
