Assassin's Creed Could Become A Trilogy

Considering there have been nine Assassin's Creed games and a bunch of spin-offs, there's probably no shortage of material for a sequel to the movie adaptation. However, star and producer Michael Fassbender says that if all goes according to plan, the upcoming Assassin's Creed will be just the beginning.

Fassbender recently told CinemaBlend that the first movie mostly serves as the setup for a bigger story about time traveler Callum Lynch.

"This is the sort of origin of his story," Fassbender said. "We have an idea of where he's going to go over the next two films. We kind of did a three-film arc. We'll wait and see how people respond to this, but for sure, we have an idea of where he's going to go next."

As CinemaBlend points out, Fassbender has been vital in bringing the video game series to the big screen since he signed on back in 2012. After a two-year search to find a director, it was Fassbender who recruited Justin Kurzel, who he'd worked with on Macbeth. He also convinced his co-star in that movie, Marion Cotillard, to come aboard.

Of course, video game adaptations have had mixed success at the box office. For every Resident Evil success story, there's a BloodRayne dud. But Assassin's Creed certainly looks poised for big things when it arrives Dec. 21.
