Marion Cotillard joins Michael Fassbender's Assassin's Creed film

It's been some time since we've heard anything about the video game adaptation of Assassin's Creed.  Well, this week we got two great updates.  The first is... that the movie finally moved into production!  It's actually being made, Woo-hoo!  It's literally been years since this movie was greenlit, and it's released date has been set for December 21, 2016!  As originally reported, Michael Fassbender will produce, and star in the film.

The second update involves the casting of an Oscar winning actress.  Marion Cotillard has joined the cast of the film.  I thoroughly enjoy Cotillard's work, and think she can do no wrong.  She's even nominated for an Oscar for next week's Academy Awards.

It's way too early to tell; but this film might, maybe, hopefully, break the trend of horrible video game adaptations?  Only time will tell.  Until then, I look forward to a glimpse into the world director Justin Kurzel is creating.
