It’s been reported that Prometheus and X-Men: First Class star Michael Fassbender has signed on to co-produce and star in an upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie.
For those who may not know, last year Ubisoft started up Ubisoft Motion Pictures as a way to get their game franchises on both the big and small screens. Now we know that there will be a movie on the way and that we have a great actor in Fassbender to portray the protagonist.
Now here’s the question. Who will Fassbender play? Altair? Ezio? Or will they create a different story line for the movie and have Fassbender play someone else? Will he play Desmond as well as the Assassin? We won’t really know until details of the movie begin to surface.
I think Michael Fassbender is a great actor for the job. He was incredible as Magneto in X-Men: First Class, and is a red hot actor right now. My only concern is that he is a little old to play someone like Desmond. Which would make me believe that they could use a different story for the movie. But we will see.
What do you think about Michael Fassbender signing on to produce and star in an Assassin’s Creed movie? Let me know!!
Yes, you read correctly. According to the Twitter feeds of both the Roosterteeth Podcast and Burnie Burns, who is the writer, and director of Red vs Blue and the owner and founder of Roosterteeth Productions, Elijah Wood(yes, Frodo Baggins of the Shire) will be providing his voice talents for Season 10 of the popular Halo based web series Red vs Blue. According to Burnie, Elijah will be voicing the character of the AI Sigma. Now, if you aren’t familiar with the Red vs Blue series, you may not know who or what I’m talking about when I talk about AI’s and what they have to do with the Greek alphabet. It’s about nine seasons of backstory I would have to go through so all I can say is, catch up because season ten’s gonna be amazing.
To say that Roosterteeth getting a big time Hollywood actor like Elijah Wood to come on and do voice work is pretty fucking cool.
I’ve been following Roosterteeth and Red vs Blue for many many years now and to see how they started the series, which was in a spare bedroom in Buda, TX and a closet in Los Angeles, CA, and now they are regulars at San Diego Comic Con and PAX, making commercial spots for Gamestop, and working closely with gaming companies like BioWare, Certain Affinity, and 343 Industries. And now they have gotten the talents of a well known actor to voice who I’m thinking will be a very pivotal character in this new season.
I was looking forward to Season 10 before, but now I’m really starting to get excited about it.
Hey guys. For those who may not known, I love the Ninja Turtles. I grew up watching the cartoon, I have all three original movies on VHS and have two copies of the first three movies on DVD and the CG movie on DVD as well, a case full of old action figures, bed sheets, a TMNT backpack full of TMNT water bottles, and posters of TMNT…I’m a fan. So when word began to spread about the new movie and how it was a live action movie that was to be dark and gritty, I was excited….until today when I read an article about the movie.
Michael Bay, who has already ruined the Transformers for many die hard fans of that franchise, is a producer for the new Ninja Turtles movie. And he has teased some information about the upcoming movie, more specifically, the origin of the Turtles.
Yes, he’s changing the origin of the Turtles….he’s making them aliens.
Yeah….ALIENS!! HE’S MAKING THEM ALIENS!!!
What is with this guy and aliens?!?!? WHY DOES HE HAVE TO RUIN THE CHILDHOODS OF SO MANY PEOPLE!?!?!
As you can tell, I’m not happy about this. There’s a reason why the book is called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It’s because they’re MUTANTS…NOT ALIENS!!
This had better be just some sort of stupid idea he has for the movie. And I really hope Kevin Eastman puts a stop to this as well.
You don’t mess with the origin story. You can change whatever else you want about the Turtles, but don’t change the origin. If that actually becomes the origin for the new movie, there’s a very VERY good chance that I will not be seeing this movie.
Here’s a teaser trailer for a Super Bowl trailer for the Avengers. I know, a trailer for a trailer? But it’s The Avengers.
WE FINALLY GOT TO SEE THE HULK!!!!
Needless to say, I will be watching the Super Bowl on Sunday(Go Giants BTW), and will be anticipating this particular commercial.
I was just reading some news about the upcoming sequel/reboot Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, and I noticed something rather interesting that could suggest that another character will take up the Ghost Rider mantle after this movie.
For those who don’t know, Ghost Rider 2 takes place a few years after the events of the first movie and follow Johnny Blaze(played once again by Nic Cage) as he hides out in Eastern Europe trying to find a way to rid himself of the Ghost Rider curse. He is approached by a monk who intends on “hiring” the Ghost Rider to protect a mother and her son who are being pursued by the Devil, who intends on using the boy as a human vessel. The only reason Blaze accepts is because he is given the impression that his curse could be lifted by helping.
Now here’s the catch. The son’s name is Danny Ketch. For those who don’t know, Dan Ketch is the name of the man who takes over the Ghost Rider mantle from Johnny Blaze in the comics. I didn’t even catch this before. I figured that the mother and son characters were original characters created for the movie( a la Rachel Dawes in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight). I didn’t even think to look up character names. Knowing that the kid that Blaze is protecting is a major character from the source material could mean that there could be a character change after this movie is over. Let’s face it, Nic Cage is not the youngest guy out there playing super heroes these days. He probably won’t be doing too many of the big time action movies for too much longer( I’m still waiting on National Treasure 3 so I can find out what was on that damn page).
Anyway, to me, even though I like Nic Cage, I think it’s time to move on to another Rider as far as the source material is concerned. And the inclusion of the character of Dan Ketch, even as a child, suggests that a Rider change could happen. I hope that directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor and the writers have taken the source material into consideration and make that change. But I guess we will have to wait and see on February 17th.
