It’s been a while since we’ve heard much about the planned movie version of the hit videogame franchise Assassin’s Creed. The last news was that Frank Marshall was producing with Michael Fassbender attached to star. Now they may have found a director, as Twitch suggests 20th Century Fox is eyeing Daniel Espinosa to direct.
No deal has been signed, but talks are ongoing between the director and the studio. Espiona is best known in the states for Safe House and his international hit Easy Money (also known as Snabba Cash).
Assassin’s Creed follows a bartender who learns he comes from a long line of assassins. He is forced by a corporation to hunt down precious artifacts, while using a device that gives him all the skills and memories of his ancestors.
Assassin’s Creed is currently scheduled for a 2015 release, with the studio hoping to start shooting fairly soon.
