The cast of Justin Kurzel’s (Macbeth) Assassin’s Creed continues to get more and more impressive, with Brendan Gleeson (Edge of Tomorrow) and Jeremy Irons (Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice) acting as the latest additions to the video game adaptation.
As the movie is set in the same world as the Assassin’s Creed video games rather than a live-action retelling of one of them, plot details are currently scarce. We do, however, know who the two aforementioned actors will be playing. Gleeson has been cast as the father of Michael Fassbender’s character, while Irons plays the father of Marion Cotillard’s character.
In Assassin’s Creed, Lynch (Fassbender) 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.
Assassin’s Creed also stars Michael Kenneth Williams and Ariane Labed, and is currently set to be released on December 21st, 2016.
Tell us, are you looking forward to this take on Assassin’s Creed? It certainly has an incredible cast so far, that much is certain.
