2oth Century Fox has released the first image of Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch, an original character not seen before in the games. The story follows a similar story to the video game with some changes:
Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in thepresent day.
I think it was a good move to change the story a bit and give it a fresh take on the mythology created in the games. This movie is very important to me personally since I, myself am considered to have many assassin-like qualities. I can sneak very quietly into heavily fortified areas and I can destroy a man with finesse. I know what you’re thinking, “sneaking into a closed McDonald’s in a bath robe and shoving food down your throat for 2 hours doesn’t make you an assassin.” Oh yeah? tell that to the 12 big macs that are no longer with us.
