Daniel Espinosa For ASSASSIN'S CREED?

[UPDATE: Representatives from New Regency say they are not in contact with Espinosa and he is not attached to the film.]

Has the upcoming big screen adaptation of Assassin's Creed found its director? Though nothing has firmed up just yet there is persistent talk that the film's producers and backer New Regency have zeroed in on Swedish director Daniel Espinosa to take the helm.

Espinosa originally burst on to the Hollywood radar with his 2010 Swedish action thriller Snabba Cash (Easy Money), a massive international hit which led to Espinosa taking the helm of Ryan Reynolds / Denzel Washington hit Safe House while also launching its Swedish star Joel Kinnaman - now known for the US version of The Killing and soon to be on screens as the lead in RoboCop - to Hollywood stardom.

Currently scheduled for 2015 release Assassin's Creed should be gearing up soon with Michael Fassbender attached to star and produce.

    I wonder if they're going to do an original AC character or someone from the actual video games?

    Whatever character they choose, I'm sure they'll have to use a lot of CGI, like they did for the 30-minute short they did prior to the release of AC II.

    Still, can't wait to see how it turns out. Hopefully there can be a successful movie series based on a video game besides Resident Evil!
