New writers hired for Assassin's Creed movie
The Assassin's Creed movie, starring Michael Fassbender, might be cutting its summer 2015 release a little fine...
It might just be us, but it does seem as though the August 2015 release date that's been set for the big screen debut of Assassin's Creed is looking increasingly ambitious. Most of the big summer films of 2015 are either shooting now or starting shortly. Assassin's Creed? It's just had another script rewrite ordered.
This time, Adam Cooper and Bill Collage have been tapped up to take a fresh stab at the screenplay. They've previously worked on the script for Ridley Scott's upcoming biblical blockbuster Exodus.

As far as we know, the project doesn't have a director locked down yet, in spite of rumours of Safe House's Daniel Espinosa being linked with the job.
