The Assassin’s Creed movie will talk about a brand new story set in the Assassin’s Creed universe, but won’t be completely deprived from references to the game’s lore and characters, according to production armorer Tim Wildgoose.
“Although we’re designing the weapons ourselves, there are certain things you have to stick to — the way the wrist blades work,” he said in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly.
“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.”
Anyway, the movie won’t involve previous games’ protagonists such as Altair and Ezio Auditore, as he added that “they’re not main characters from the games, but they’re very famous characters that the fans will probably enjoy.”
We already know Abstergo CEO Alain Rikki is going to be played by Jeremy Irons, but it looks like Wildgoose was talking about other and more popular chacters. The movie will be in theaters on December 21.
