Just in case you forgot there was going to be an Assassin’s Creed film, there’s going to be an Assassin’s Creed film:

A barren but emotive website for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie has appeared. It doesn’t have much information, but does allow you to sign up for a newsletter to stay on top of film updates.
The site is supposed to be the homepage of Abstergo Industries, the corporation that represents the Templar Order (the bad guys, in-game) in the modern age. From the site, we can see that they have offices all over the world.
Meanwhile, the film’s official Twitter has posted the above photo of an Abstergo business card belonging to “Alan Rikkin” (not to be confused with Alan Rickman), who will be played by Jeremy Irons.
Polygon called the number listed on the card, and got a voicemail from the man himself. You can listen to it at that link.
Rikkin will be the antagonist of Michael Fassbender’s Assassin Callum Lynch. The film is scheduled for December 21, 2016. Marion Cotillard is also a cast member. She starred alongside Fassbender in Macbeth, also directed by Assassin’s Creed director Justin Kurzel.
