Assassin’s Creed will not be reiterating any of the stories from the existing video games (22 in all), but inventing a new story that exists within the same universe as the games. The games involve a secret, centuries-old enclave of assassins who engage in past-life regression. There are various historical conspiracies involving the Knights Templar and others of that ilk. The film will also star Marion Cotillard.

Filming on Assassin’s Creed begins on Monday in Malta.
