The screenplay for the forthcoming Assassin's Creed film will be penned by the relatively unknown Michael Lesslie.
Lesslie, who has no feature-length films under his belt, has penned scripts for short films including Skirt and Heavy Metal Drummer. He's also the playwright responsible for Prince of Denmark.
The film - which is a collaborative effort between studio New Regency and Ubisoft Motion Pictures - will star Michael Fassbender in its lead role. It was announced in October that the preparation of a screenplay would be 'fast tracked' following the partnership, despite news of Lesslie's commitment coming months later.
