The partnership with New Regency comes hot on the heels of Ubisoft Motion Pictures attaching distinguished actor Michael Fassbender to the Assassin’s Creed film.
“We wanted to do everything we could to secure the rights to Assassin's Creed, which Ubisoft has maintained with such care and quality over the years,” said Brad Weston, president and chief executive officer, New Regency. "Having just finished working with Michael on Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave (with Plan B) made the partnership even more irresistible."
In addition to this Assassin's Creed film, Ubisoft Motion Pictures is also ready to release 78 seven-minute long CGI episodes based off of their Rabbids franchise. They are also working on full-length feature films based off of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon franchises.
