Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of Paris-based Ubisoft Motion Pictures, told Variety that the X-Men: First Class and Prometheus actor was the company's "first choice" to play the series' iconic hooded hero (which one, we're not sure).

"Michael (Fassbender) is an extremely smart, talented, versatile and committed actor," he added.

Last year Sony Pictures was said to be close to finalising a deal with Ubisoft to release a series of Assassin's Creed films. However, Ubisoft will now develop the film independently in order to ensure it has greater creative control.

Ubisoft has also said it wants to bring the Splinter Cell and Ghost Recon franchises to the big screen.
