meh.... I'll just play the games.
Assassin's Creed Is Probably Going to Be a Movie Now
I think this, and Mass Effect, offer some of the most fleshed out universes that can be adapted into film. They don't even need to tell the story of the games they're based on or even the characters because the lore is so strong. Granted, the narrative in Assassin's Creed has become way too convoluted and might need some trimming down before going on the big screen. My only wish would be to see them focus more in past ages than in modern times. And even if it sucks we always have the awesome games to go back to.
No. I'm so fucking worn out by Ezio. It was a stretch to drag out Ezio's story for the second second game and I'm really not looking forward to the third second game of Ezio. And then definitely not a movie on top of all of that. Otherwise, it has enough concept that it could probably make a decent movie in and of itself, with the right writer.
They should just essentially make the first movie basically exactly like AC 1, just remove desmonds storyline being interwoven and the fact that it's in the animus until the very end so as to set up a sequel and effectively have a nice complete story, so that you don't need to have seen it to watch the inevitable sequel.
I would also prefer if this movie focused in either the Altair story or that time-period, because
- a) It would have none of the DaVinci shenanigans, and would probably be a "stealthier" movie
- b) I much prefer the Altair character over Ezio
Yep. The Holy Land just works better as a setting for a story that is essentially about the clash between religion and secular humanism. Altair was always a better character too.
Before I jump onboard with Ubisoft's whole "We'll do it ourselves" approach to video game filmmaking, they need to come out and say whether or not Prince of Persia was the inspiration behind it, and whether they saw that as a success and a step in the right direction, or a failing and something they want to prevent from happening again.
Because Prince of Persia is some of the worst garbage I've ever watched.
You know, this could work....
If they leave established canon alone and set the film in somewhere we haven't explored...perhaps a movie about the history of the order, or about a group of Assassins working in 2012 against Abstergo.
I just want them to leave the game canon alone and turn their attention to other parts of the AC Universe that could do with a good fleshing out on screen...with subtle ties to the games in there for the uber-fans
I doubt they leave much of the Eden stuff in, but I think that's the only way it would be interesting. Sort of an Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark thing for the Pieces of Eden.
Christ, I hope not. It was okay at the end of AC1, but in AC2 where they're all like
I was about ready to check out with the series.
If this does happen, I wouldn't want it to be a high flying adventure with a cooky comic relief side kick. I'd want it set in a single city and handled more like a crime drama or detective story with political intrigue and junk.
Ezio Auditore Da Firenze is a terrific hero, and very well developed. He's one of the best leading characters I've ever had the privilege to meet in a an action game. Altair wasn't bad, but Ezio was more likable in my opinion. If they do make a Assassin's Creed movie, then I would love for Ezio to be the lead hero. Since Assassin's Creed 2 was set in Rennaisance Italy, then I think they could do a good job recreating the time period, plus the costumes would be amazing, too. That's my preference, but I will be happy with whatever UbiSoft, and Hollywood choose to do.
