Among movie stars, the business model is widely known as “One for them, one for me”: an appearance in a small, heartfelt film followed up by a paycheck part in a presumed blockbuster.

Hot on the heels of her surprise best actress Oscar nomination for the intimate drama Two Days, One Night, French actress Marion Cotillard has signed on to a project that – at least at first blush – would seem to exist as the polar opposite of prestige film: a big budget live-action adaptation of the Ubisoft videogame Assassin’s Creed.

This isn’t out of character for Cotillard. The actress scored an Academy Award portraying torch singer Edith Piaf in 2007’s La Vie En Rose but also played a key role in comic book adaptation The Dark Knight Rises. In Assassin’s Creed, she’ll star opposite Michael Fassbender in an as-yet unspecified part that will reportedly span multiple movies should the first film rack up enough box-office returns to spawn a franchise.

Assassin’s Creed also marks a reunion for Fassbender and Cotillard, who star together in Macbeth, a kind of gothic reimagining of the Shakespeare classic directed by Australian filmmaker Justin Kurzel, that arrives in theaters later this year. In what might also be fairly called a “one for them” maneuver, Kurzel is also directing Assassin’s Creed and seems to have succeeded in regrouping his A-list his principles.

The video game series encompasses nine different games that have reportedly sold a combined 91 million units. It follows the travails of a bartender who is kidnapped by a secret organization with ties to the Knights Templar and must travel back through time to relive the memories of his ancestors—all of whom happened to be highly trained professional killers—and retrieve historical artifacts. Production on the film is reportedly set to begin in December 2016. (source)

Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed movie has officially entered production and should start shooting soon, chief executive officer Yves Guillemot announced Thursday during an earnings call.

The movie, produced by New Regency and 20th Century Fox, will hit theaters on December 21, 2016. That’s one week after the first Star Wars spinoff movie hits cinemas.

“This is a very important milestone for the project,” Guillemot said.

Though the Assassin’s Creed movie is now officially greenlit, we still don’t know much about it outside of the fact that Inglourious Basterds actor Michael Fassbender will play the lead role. The movie will be directed by Justin Kurzel, who directed Fassbender in upcoming movie Macbeth.

Talking about the movie last year, Fassbender said the Assassin’s Creed film will be respectful of the game. At the same time, however, the actor pointed out that “we also want to bring new elements to it and perhaps our own vision of things that already exist in the game.”

Ubisoft has a total of six movies in the pipeline. In addition to Assassin’s Creed, the Paris-based publisher is making movies based on its Far Cry, Rabbids, Watch Dogs, Splinter Cell, and Ghost Recon franchises. In all instances, Ubisoft will retain creative control through its Ubisoft Motion Pictures group. [source]

With Christian Bale definitively out of the running to play Steve Jobs for Danny Boyle’s next, untitled film (this week, at least), the role is wide open. And it appears that Boyle already has another choice, with Michael Fassbender in early talks to fill the vacant position.

It’s worth remembering that things are at a very early stage and Fassbender may not even get as far as making a deal for the role, but he’s certainly able to do it even if he doesn’t naturally seem to be a facial fit for the Apple icon. And let’s not forget what his superpowers could do to computers if he gets angry – iPods will be flying everywhere…

Aaron Sorkin wrote the script for the film, working from Walter Isaacson’s bestselling authorised biography of the man. The story focuses on three big moments in Jobs’ corporate life: the launch of the Mac; NeXT (which was introduced after he was removed from the company); and the iPod, launched after his triumphant return.

Seth Rogen has been in discussions to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, but there’s no sign of how Bale’s exit might shift the dynamics in future while Jessica Chastain last week denied all knowledge of rumours that she was also set for a role. Boyle wants to lock the cast down as soon as possible so as to kick off shooting early next year.[source]

Peter Maximoff has posted on his Instagram account a new video that features Peter, a.k.a. Quicksilver, playing some kind of trivia game with his friends. While trying to answer the question about the meaning of the word “lodestone”, he uses his super speed to find out online and in a book the answer to the question.
The text with the video says, “Good thing Mom kept all those weird books on magnets,” which is clearly a tease at the idea that Magneto is Peter’s father, as he is in the comics.

X-Men: Days of Future Past comes to Blu-ray and DVD on October 14.

“Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy are much more than costars : they’re kindred spirits who run and race – and sometimes rage – together. Their latest onscreen reunion comes in this month’s X-men: Days of Future Past. Offscreen, they met in a North London pub for a drink-up and a few rounds of straight talk on superheroes, Shakespeare, snogging Angelina, and the meaning of their true bromance” – as the intro for the interview states.

It’s a fantastic interview of both James and Michael, which just proves once again the great chemistry of these two fantastic actors both on- and off-screen. Together with the exlusive interview comes a fantastic covers, actually double cove, which I’ve scanned and uploaded on my fansite for you guys, enjoy 😉
