Ubisoft has announced that one of their first projects for their new film studio is to bring Assassin's Creed to live action. Here are my choices for a cast.

Altair/ Desmond/ Ezio
David Belle
French, 38 years old

The co-creator of parkour has acting experience and doubles as a stuntman. He has martial arts training and a slew of underground credentials. His age could be a factor being the oldest Ive chosen BUT, his experience could be a bigger asset.

Dev Patel
English Indian, 21 years old

Dev's breakout role was in The Last Airbender. The movie bombed but Dev stood out and made his face recognizable. He is an underdog for this role because the dude never stops smiling, his experience is lacking, and Ubisoft might not choose him for what demographic he appeals to. 

Ian Somerhalder
American, 32 years old

Ian is best known for his role as Damon in The Vampire Diaries, but he can act. The reason I'm optioning him for the role is that Ubisoft needs a strong lead but someone who isn't easily recognizable. Assassin's Creed is about the story but also has strong characters. Ian has model experience if Ubisoft wants a pretty-boy to wield the hidden blades.

Jackson Rathbone
American born in Singapore, 26 years old

Everyone knows Jackson from Twilight but he has a broader range of talents and can pull of the darker side of an assassin. Rathbone hasn't hit major stardom yet which could be beneficial to the story and plot but could hurt him as well.  I choose Jackson for his chameleon-like performances.

James Franco
American, 33 years old.

This man can simply act his way out of a paper-bag. He can play almost any role and he is the Wild-Card of Hollywood. Look at almost all of his work and you'll see why he could pull off the level of emotion required. He's got the popularity to launch a frenzy with the role, but he may still be type-casted as the "pot smoking funny man" everyone knows him as. I , for one, would be excited if Franco was interested in the film; only if he doesn't ask for a lot of zeros in his paycheck.

Kristen Bell

Seriously there is no other choice. She played the role of the game, had her face scanned, read the scripts for the voice, and knows the role and story. Kristen would ace the part and she's a knockout to beat. She's not well known and a great up and coming actress.

There are a lot more actors that could take the roles and this list is a simple off-the-top-of-my-head roster. Comment and tell me who you think should be casted and why.

If you've been up-to-date with ThePauseMenu you already know that Ubisoft has created its own motion picture studio, Ubisoft Motion Pictures, to produce big-screen adaptations of some of their most prized franchises.

Ubisoft reported to Variety that they are in production of "3D Feature" titles of Assassin's Creed, Ghost Recon, and Splinter Cell (I would personally cast George Clooney.)

UMP head Jean-Julien Baronnet explained that his division "has been working with the games' producers and Ubisoft's marketing team to identify the DNA of each game and come up with storylines that are consistent." He also noted that the group's plans have garnered plenty of interest "from US studios and screenwriters."

There are reports of UMP expecting a script involving one of the titles previously mentioned.

Ubisoft has announced that Assassin's Creed Revelations will be released this November and wrap up Ezio Auditore de Firenze's storyline. This will not be an "Assassin's Creed 3," but will tie up all the loose ends between Ezio, Altair, and Desmond.

What We Know:
  • Ezio, Altair, and Desmond will be playable characters.
  • The Ottoman Empire and the city of Constantinople/Istanbul will be the main playable map.
  • June's Issue of GameInformer will unveil Assassin's Creed Revelations.
  • "Learn about all the new features that set Revelations apart, from a brand new weapon and tool that changes the way you'll fight and traverse the world, to extensive details on the newly customizable multiplayer game."-GameInformer
    This "new weapon" may be what is on Ezio's right-handed blade; which looks like a grappling-hook.

Assassin's Creed Revelations will be fully announced later this month and is rumored to be present at E32011. This is the fourth game in the series and Ubisoft has promised to keep the story and gameplay unique in each chapter. Look for Assassin's Creed revelations this November.
