Michael Fassbender must have gotten along famously with Aussie director Justin Kurzel on the set of their upcoming Macbeth remake, because he’s just tapped the Snowtown filmmaker to helm his upcoming Assassin’s Creed adaptation.
According to Variety, Kurzel is in talks to helm the video game flick for Fox, which has long had Fassbender attached as star and producer.
Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) and Gareth Evans (The Raid) were previously in the mix for the gig.
Fassbender will play a bartender who is kidnapped by a secretive organisation and informed of his assassin ancestry.
It’s set to hit cinemas in August of 2015.
Macbeth is also set to bow in 2015.
