Assassin’s Creed Might Be Getting A Reboot

CINEMA NEWS – Disney is planning to restart one of the main franchises of Ubisoft with an entirely new cast.

Ubisoft started the cinematic adaptation of Assassin’s Creed in December 2016, which didn’t get a lot of success (however, it was profitable financially, which needs to be mentioned!), as nor the film critics, neither the fans were praising the film. How is Disney related to all of this, you ask?

It’s simple: the distributor of Assassin’s Creed was 20th Century Fox. It (or, to be more exact, the entire 21th Century Fox, but NOT the television arm of Fox, now named Fox Corporation!) was acquired by Disney earlier this year, meaning the movie adaptation of Assassin’s Creed got into „the House of Mouse”. We Got This Covered reports that Disney is already planning to reboot Assassin’s Creed with a new cast. The site claims this based on what they heard from the same source that talked about the Aladdin reboot getting a sequel, and that She-Hulk is going to Disney Plus. (Disney Plus is going to be a competitor to Netflix.) It means that Michael Fassbender, the protagonist in the 2016 Assassin’s Creed film, will likely not reprise his role.

We Got This Covered’s source claims either the reboot could get another full-fledged film for the cinemas, or it could show up on Disney Plus to see how successful it is. If it ends up being successful, it could either get one or two films later. However, the ideas are all in a preliminary stage, so things could change. There’s one twist that the source also seemed to forget: DISNEY DOESN’T OWN THE IP. Assassin’s Creed is owned by Ubisoft, so unless they agree to the Disney ideas, there will be NO rebooting here.

They probably want to make a „family-friendly” film.
