What may not come as a surprise to most of you, it seems that Michael Fassbender, who is set to star in the film adaptation of Assassin’s Creed, does not play video games. This comes from a recent interview he gave to The Daily Beast, in which he stated, “I don’t have a video game player … that’s not what they’re called. [Laughs]”

Mr. Fassbender also provided an update on film, stating that it is, “definitely happening. We’re just developing the script at the moment.” Though he does not own a video game console, Mr. Fassbender added that he had indeed heard of the Assassin’s Creed franchise before, and that the idea of reliving memories was one aspect of the canon that drew him to the film.

Assassin’s Creed is being written by Scott Frank, will star Michael Fassbender, and will be released on June 19th, 2015. The film is being produced by Sony and Ubisoft, and will be shot in 3D.
