“Assassin’s Creed” Film To Be Developed By Sony

Variety is reporting that Sony has purchased the rights to bring the popular Assassin’s Creed video games to the big screen. The Assassin games are a mix of the historical and sci-fi genres, detailing the adventures of a modern day bartender who is forced to relive his ancestor’s lives in order to give information to a shadowy organization. The game series has spawned three entries so far, with a fourth to be released this November.

I’ve only played the first entry, but I enjoyed the hell out of it. There’s a lot of room for the player’s creativity when it comes to taking down a target, and a massive world that is incredibly fun to explore for hours. Sony doesn’t have a director, writer, or even a producer in mind at this point, but whoever gets the gig will have plenty of material to play with.

We’ll keep you updated as the story develops.
