Pocket Books has announced it will novelise Assassin's Creed. The title of the first book will be Assassin's Creed Book One: The Invisible Imam and is due to be published in October of 2007. The publisher plans to print a trilogy of novels based on Ubisoft's upcoming game. The first title in the novel series will detail events leading up to the beginning of the game.

According to xbox.com there have been some discussions between five major studios and Ubisoft, concerning making a film adaptation of Assassin's Creed.However the identities of the film companies have not been revealed and neither has Ubisoft's response.

Do you think it's possible a film is in the making?

I think the film is not in the making yet, they'll probably wait at least until the game gets released.

That's just the "eight minute film" competition (at least i think it's a competition). the winning short film will be included in the limited edition of the game.
And i think i've seen an interview where someone from ubi (cant remember who) said about the five film companies but they arent going to release any info on the possible film yet.

CGI stuff really wont be that bad. I think it would be better then a real-life type movie. I mean, look at Advent Children. Im not saying it was a good movie or not. Im saying it looked terrific.

I just wish metal gear would do CGI. I dont know how that will turn out with actors. It needs to be his voice!

mm...MGS will only work CGI...and the same with assassins.

only cuz you can have some seriously warped action scenes and filming points that are really hard to do with real actors and cameras.

besides, once they make the altair costume it wont last 5mins before getting stolen http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

what o you mean about advent children??
of course it was an amazing movie!!!

frikin cloud AND tifa AND yuffie were in it!!!

lol. those three are some of the best FF characters...and auron of course...

No I agree it is a wicked movie. I just didnt want to show how i felt so I wouldnt ruin the thread with an unrelated discussion.
But MGS is in the works right now apperently. Live action filming.

[UPDATE]Executive confirms his movie studio is working on the live-action adaptation of the seminal stealth action series

Its not CGI, its live action. Though im sure nothing is written in stone.

^ Nah, I does get more people aware about the game. I mean I would have never stumbelled upon this game if it wasnt for me looking at MGS4 trailers, and seeing a video of Assassin's Creed featured.

true true...when it's a full movie with actors and all...but in terms of quality, im for CGI!

McMasterJ

I completly agree. It should be CGI, no questions about it. I dont think any video game turned into movie could still be as good as the game with live-action acting.

That's my twin sister XD FF7AC is one of my favorite movies. I think I've seen it like 25x http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif Vincent is my favorite...

I believe that every movie that's based on video games should be adapted in CGI. The majoritiy of real-life movies based on video games turn out to be a disaster. I mean, have you seen Alone in the Dark?

Anyways, back on topic...

Vincent's my fave too! =D

Hmm, nah, I haven't seen Alone in the Dark but I heard it was horrible. xD

The only video game based movie that was good is Silent Hill. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Just to be back on topic.. Depending on how good the story in AC is I might buy the books and movie. =D

Actually I've changed my opinion CGI would be better. Is it confirmed that it's CGI?

I hope its not CGI. Nothing against that, but I think it would be better with real people...and if Orlando Bloom plays Altair, I will shoot myself.

What about Hitman I think Jason Statham would have been better for the role due to he looks like him if you want proof watch The trasporter movies where he wears a suit like agent47 but yea I say CGI and no Orlando Bloom.

If they do make a film it would be pretty cool in CGI, but if it was just another normal fim, i think this guy should star as Alta´r because i can picture him wearing the same clothing and looking very much alike the character, the guy also stars in the prison break series, and does some amazing acting in it.

Wenworth Miller. He's so effin' hot. If David Beckham were an actor, I think he could be a good Altair...
