The big-screen adaptation of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed has finally locked down a screenwriter.

Michael Lesslie, who is relatively unknown in the industry, will pen the script.

While Lesslie doesn’t have the biggest name in the business, he has written scripts for short films, including Skirt and Heavy Metal Drummer.

In July 2012, 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,” said Weston.
