That’s right – the production company New Regency has made a deal to finance the proposed Michael Fassbender Assassin’s Creed project! Check it out!
Yesterday, Deadline reported that production company New Regency had penned a deal with video game make Ubisoft to finance a Michael Fassbender spear-headed movie adaptation of the very popular Assissn’s Creed game.
“This is the perfect intersection of what we have been trying to do, and that is to work with top quality talent like Michael Fassbender,” said Regency CEO Brad Weston. “We see this as our first big commercial action franchise property. Fassbender just did 12 Years A Slave with us, and he is as good an actor as there is right now. The storyline we are pursuing has a great narrative and because Ubisoft’s games are so character- and story-driven, Assassin’s Creed lends itself perfectly to our goal to re-brand Regency as a filmmaker-driven company.”
“Ubisoft chose to partner with New Regency because they are a talent- and filmmaker-driven company, with the same independent and creative mindset that we have at Ubisoft Motion Pictures,” said UMP CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet. “Bringing aboard New Regency’s renowned production and distribution expertise while maintaining our own creative and financial flexibility ensures that Assassin’s Creed will be a high-quality film that respects the lore and fans of the video game franchise.”
As an added bonus for avid fans of the cult video game, the deal will ensure that Ubisoft will have strong creative input into the movie’s script. Awesome, right?
