New Regency and Ubisoft are in talks with Justin Kurzel to direct the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie.

Deadline reports that Kurzel, who has just finished filming Macbeth with Michael Fassbender, will reunite with the Prometheus star on the live action adaptation on the hit video game, set to land in cinemas next year.

Fassbender is to both co-produce and star in the film which is said to 'revolve around a man who learns his ancestors were trained assassins after he is kidnapped by a secret org with ties to the Knights Templar, and sent back in time to retrieve historical artefacts.'

Regency and Ubisoft are in the thick of bringing video game properties to the big screen at the moment, as the firms also have the Splinter Cell movie in the pipeline with director Doug Liman and Tom Hardy starring.
