British writer Michael Lesslie has been hired to write the script for the film project of Assassin’s Creed, which is based on the popular Ubisoft video game series. This will be the first full-length feature script for Lesslie, who is best known as the playwright of last year’s National Theatre production Prince of Denmark, according to an article in The Hollywood Reporter.

The film is being co-produced by Ubisoft Motion Pictures (the film division of French game company Ubisoft) and New Regency, and will star Michael Fassbender (X Men First Class, Prometheus) as the time-traveling main character who relives the lives of his assassin ancestors.
