Looks like Sony has won the dubious honor of being able to produce and distribute a film based on the UbiSoft video game series Assassin’s Creed.
The games feature a lot of running along rooftops, pushing through crowds and tracking powerful targets before driving a knife in their back. There’s even a sci-fi component as the bulk of the action in each game is actually the recreation of ancestral memories buried within a guy who is related to the line of assassins the player controls in the series. The presentation in each game is undeniably cinematic, but as with most games the action doesn’t directly translate to cinema. But there is a story there that could be adapted into a movie, and one that would make sense in context with the various Assassin’s Creed game titles.
