A new report suggests that upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie could reach cinemas on May 22, 2015.
An update on Box Office Mojo pegs the May 2015 release date. The in-production movie stars Michael Fassbender in a lead role, and a screenplay penned by Michael Lesslie.
Lesslie previously penned the Hamlet prequel Prince of Denmark for the theatre. The play features a teenage Hamlet, Ophelia and Laertes and their exploits around Elsinore castle.
Details about the film’s director and supporting cast are still unknown.
Ubisoft announced in October 2012 it has “fast-tracked” the movie and partnered with production outfit New Regency.
Last week Ubisoft said that it did not expect this year’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag to match the sales of 2012’s Assassin’s Creed III.
