Marion Cotillard has reportedly signed up to a role in the new Justin Kurzel production. The film, Assassin’s Creed is an adaptation of the Ubisoft video game released in November last year, and which has sold 91 million units so far.
They’re keeping under wraps the role that Cotillard plays, but she’s a versatile actress who won the Oscar for La Vie En Rose, and also played an action role inThe Dark Knight Rises. Like Fassbender, her role is meant to span multiple films if this one scores and becomes a franchise.
Marion will team up with Michael Fassbender for the second time, as the two have worked in Kurzel’s previous production, Macbeth. Production will start in the fall and the release is scheduled December 2016.
