We’ll be getting yet another movie version of a popular video game franchise in the form of Assassin’s Creed later this year, and while we’ve definitely seen some familiar traits we also know that it will be taking things in a new direction. However, despite the movie being lead by a new character played by Michael Fassbender, it has now been confirmed that some previously-established characters will make appearances in the movie.
The news was revealed by the movie’s armorer, David Wildgoose, who spoke to Entertainment Weekly recently. He said that “There’s basically a few assassins taken straight from the games, who we get to see in the films. They’re not main characters from the games, but they’re very famous characters that the fans will probably enjoy.”
He also reveals the process of making weapons that will be used within the movie, saying “Although we’re designing the weapons ourselves, there are certain things you have to stick to — the way the wrist blades work. In that sense, we were going the Ubisoft reference as a design guide. At the same time, there are assassins from the games in the film as well. In some case, we could directly copy the Ubisoft weapons onto their characters.”
The Assassin’s Creed movie will debut in theaters on December 21st.
