“Minority Report” and “The Wolverine” scribe Scott Frank has reportedly come onboard to perform re-writes on the film adaptation of Ubisoft’s acclaimed video game series “Assassin’s Creed”.
Frank says: “I’m rewriting Assassin’s Creed right now, and what I love about it is that I’ve never adapted a video game before and it has its own set of challenges. Especially in the world of rewrites, I love trying to do something completely different if I can.”
Michael Lesslie penned the previous drafts for the film which is being produced by Ubisoft Motion Pictures and is slated to star Michael Fassbender.
The film aims to begin production early next year ahead of a Summer 2015 release.
