The Assassin's Creed film script, first penned by British playwright Michael Lesslie, is now being passed off to another screenwriter. Scott Frank—the writer behind The Wolverine, Minority Report, and Marley & Me—is taking a stab at a rewrite for the film, which is currently scheduled to arrive on June 19, 2015.
While talking with Creative Screenwriting, Frank said, "I'm rewriting Assassin's Creed right now, and what I love about it is that I've never adapted a video game before and it has its own set of challenges.
"Especially in the world of rewrites, I love trying to do something completely different if I can. That's how Marley & Me happened."
Hopefully he can work some magic on the script. As previously reported, Assassin's Creed will feature Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class, Prometheus) in the starring role.
