According to executive producer Pat Crowley of the Assassin’s Creed movie, 65% of screen time will be devoted to painting the events taking place in the present time, and only 35% 35% in the film’s Animus-assisted 15th Century Spain. It’s still not a game, so we worked with a different approach.
Assassin’s Creed Movie is “65% Present Day, 35% Past”
Michael Fassbender (who plays modern day convict, Callum Lynch and his assassin ancestor, Aguilar) may have an answer as to why that shift’s been made:
“There are certain things that we absolutely want to respect in the game,” he told IGN, “but we also want to bring new elements to the game […] This isn’t a video game that we’re making. We’re trying to make a cinematic experience, so there are new things that we have to introduce.”
Hero Michael Fassbender in Assassin’s Creed movie will be using the Animus-assisted in Spain from the 15th century to survive the adventure of his ancestor Aguilar. The Spanish Inquisition (Spanish: Tribunal del Santo Oficio de la Inquisición), the never-ending struggle between Assassins and Templars, as well as the plot unfolding in the past and today.
The film is created by joint efforts of the Ubisoft with the Regency Enterprises and 20th the Century Fox. The Russian premiere of the film will be held January 5, 2017 and December 21, 2016 in the US.
