Last summer Michael Fassbender signed with Ubisoft to star in and co-produce an Assassin’s Creed movie with sequels in mind. Ubisoft wanted Fassbender to play Altair, and they quickly penned a deal with New Regency to finance the film and distribute through 20th Century Fox. Now a release date for this Assassin’s Creed movie has been announced: May 22nd, 2015. That’s Memorial Day weekend.

No director has been announced for the movie but with a date in place, one would expect that will change shortly. […] They also have grabbed a date that’s wide open with no competing releases although it will open three weeks after Marvel’s The Avengers 2 and anyone who knows the general release date for previous Star Wars movies might be thinking J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII could be released a week before Memorial Day that same year. [Coming Soon]

Trying to go up against Star Wars: Episode VII would be a bad idea. That said, we’re just glad this hasn’t fallen apart yet. Michael Fassbender as Altair needs to happen, and not just in our Assassin’s Creed/Shame crossover fan fiction. It’s tasteful.
