Set Photo: Fassbender Films “Assassin’s Creed”

Filming is continuing right now in Vancouver on “Assassin’s Creed,” the long-awaited film adaptation of the popular video game series and a new photo of the film’s star Michael Fassbender has gone online courtesy of the Twitter account of Fassbender’s DMC Film production banner.

The scene shows Fassy’s character Callum Lynch during a scene set in present day and the actor is sporting some dark marks on the back of his next in the scene which looks like it’s a part of the Abstergo Industries setting for part of the film. In the film, the character uses a machine to revisit the past life of his ancestor – in this case a 15th century Spanish assassin.

Marion Cotillard, Michael K. Williams, Ariane Labed, Jeremy Irons and Brendan Gleeson star in the film which “Macbeth” helmer Justin Kurzel is directing. The film opens Christmas next year.
