Got it, who made the AC series brilliant (or lousy).
Last fall, it was revealed that Netflix had contracted with game publisher Ubisoft to produce brand new scripted content based on Assassin’s Creed. The deal is for a live-action TV series as well as an animated or anime adaptation of the game in serialized form. The production of the live-action series is set to start sooner, as after hearing the writer, Jeb Stuart, who delivered the best concept, was contracted to the creator of the series, Variety was informed.
Stuart’s career as a writer is very interesting, as he has pretty much no credit since 1997, he only wrote and directed the 2010 almost barely known film Blood Done Sign My Name, but last year it turned out that he would be the main creative mind in the Vikings spinoff Valhalla. Before 1997, however, Stuart wrote quite a few well-known movies, including pieces like Give Your Life Expensively !, The Fugitive, In The Prison of Revenge, or 48 Hours Again.
Nothing to know about the story of the live-action Assassin’s Creed yet. Of course, the plan is not up to date, as the game publisher has been trying to develop the TV series since 2017, as it can’t try the film very much, as they planned a multi-part franchise around the first film starring Michael Fassbender, the not-so-successful critics, both pulled down by spectators and players, and not very successful pieces did not continue. ($ 186 million in international revenue wasn’t that bad, but the U.S. number of just $ 55 million was lousy, especially for a budget of $ 125 million.)
