With news that the Ubisoft was fast-tracking the production of a live-action big-screen adaptation of Assassins Creed, more momentum has been added to the project, as Ubisoft has joined forces with New Regency production studio.

“Bringing aboard New Regency’s renowned production and distribution expertise while maintaining our own creative and financial flexibility ensures that ‘Assassin’s Creed’ will be a high-quality film that respects the lore and fans of the videogame franchise,” said Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures.

The partnership means that Assassin’s Creed now has a distribution route through Twentieth Century Fox, adding a lot of hope that the movie will hit cinemas with ease.

In July, it was revealed that Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class, Prometheus) has signed-up to star and produce.

New Regency president and CEO Brad Weston said working with Fassbender on Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave made the partnership on Assassin’s Creed “more irresistible.” “We wanted to do everything we could to secure the rights to ‘Assassin’s Creed,’ which Ubisoft has maintained with such care and quality over the years,” he said.
