Michael Fassbender is set to reteam with his Macbeth director for Assassin's Creed...

Well, the people behind the Assassin's Creed movie appear to be cutting things tight. The film is due in cinemas in August 2015, and finally, it seems to have its director.

It's been known for a while that Michael Fassbender is starring in and producing the movie. Fassbender has been working with Justin Kurzel on a new movie of Macbeth, and seemingly as a result of that, Kurzel is now in talks with UbiSoft and New Regency about directing the Assassin's Creed feature.

It's not officially confirmed that Justin Kurzel has signed on the dotted line yet, but it seems likely now that he will. And we'd imagine that production on Assassin's Creed will be starting fairly shortly - at least unless they're going to change that release date...

Deadline.
