First look at Callum Lynch : Assasin’s Creed
First set of images have come in from the sets of Assasin’s Creed starring Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch.
Callum Lynch discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society through unlocked genetic memories that allow him to relive the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th century Spain. After gaining incredible knowledge and skills he’s poised to take on the oppressive Knights Templar in the present day.
The movie diverts from the actual game series, where the protagonist Desmond Miles relives the memories of his ancestors (Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad and Ezio Auditore da Firenze) using a machine called the Animus.
When Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) explores the memories of his ancestor Aguilar and gains the skills of a Master Assassin, he discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society. Directed by Justin Kurzel and produced by Ubisoft Motion Pictures and Frank Marshall, the film will be distributed by 20th Century Fox for a planned 21 December 2016 release date
