Movie News Update: Michael Fassbender to ‘Assasin’s Creed’, P.S.Hoffman to ‘Catching Fire’

Movie News Update: Michael Fassbender to ‘Assasin’s Creed’, P.S.Hoffman to ‘Catching Fire’

Movie News and Movie Rumors Update

Michael Fassbender is set to star in the film adaptation of Ubisoft’s hit video game Assassin’s Creed. Fassbender, who has starred in X-Men: First Class, Shame and Prometheus, appears to be an interesting and strong choice to play the video game star Desmond Miles. The film, if based on the video game, has a Matrix-like feel to it based on my remembrance of briefly playing the game. Miles is a real person placed in a simulated environment where he is an assassin. The game has spawned a series of sequels, all of which have sold very well and have received rave reviews. Hopefully, that is a predictor of the film being equally, if not more, exciting.

Also, Philip Seymour Hoffman, everyone’s would be Penguin, and star of Boogie Nights and Jack Goes Boating, has signed on to star in the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire. Hoffman will play a head gamemaker, whatever that is. The first film, part of a trilogy of books, has cleaned house at the box office and the sequel I am sure will be even more anticipated as a result. The casting of Hoffman, along with the lead Jennifer Lawrence, has me intrigued. We’ll see.
