No big surprise. Seems like every game-to-movie adaptation these days has a script that needs rewriting.
As reported by Deadline , the "Assassin's Creed" movie is in need of a rewrite. "Exodus: Gods & Kings" scribes Adam Cooper and Bill Collage have come on board to handle the new script.
The live-action film starring Michael Fassbender still doesn't have a release date; it doesn't even have a director or confirmed cast. As for the aforementioned duo, they also worked on the script for "The General," which will be directed by Darren Aronofsky ("Noah," "Black Swan"). Of course, this isn't the first time the AC script was commissioned for a rewrite; British playwright Michael Lesslie wrote one of the first drafts, and then Academy Award nominee Scott Frank gave it a shot.
Well, maybe they'll get it right eventually.
