Michael Fassbender Hadn’t Played ‘Assassin’s Creed’ Before Signing Up for the Film

The Irish/German actor is set to star in a live action adaptation of the game and admits he hadn't played it before signing up for the part.

H owever, he has now educated himself on the popular video game and says he’s ready to take on the main role as Callum Lynch. The new film will be directed by  Justin Kurzel, who also recently directed Fassbender in this year’s ‘Macbeth’ film release. Michael commented that he played the game mostly to understand how his character moves and he wants to get it right for the fans:

“I hadn’t played it before these guys approached me. I’ve played it since [being offered the job] mainly to get an idea of the physicality of the character. We’re striving to find something special. We believe the whole concept around it is special and want to service that the best we can. The fans are really passionate: very specific and they expect accuracy and historical detail. We’re really trying to capitalize and feed on and enjoy the fun element. We’re working hard to make this something special.”

He adds that he has brushed up on the basic fighting moves which included learning some Parkour for the part. He is now able to tumble and do cartwheels so he can pull off the assassin’s fighting moves:

“A lot of the stuff in the game is Parkour. Blades attached to his wrists. It’s about getting in close to the target, close quarters fighting. I’ve learned how to roly poly, tumble turn. Stuff you can do in everyday life. Like cartwheels. No — just basic fight choreography stuff. I did some horse stuff today. So stuff like that.”
