The Assassin's Creed movie isn't making much use of green screen, according to Michael Fassbender, so expect some incredible leaps of faith.
One of the images that comes to mind when thinking of the Assassin's Creed series is the protagonist leaping off a massive building. And that will be present and correct in the upcoming movie starring Michael Fassbender.
He opened up recently in an interview with Empire and revealed that "there's very little green screen in this." He added, "We have stunt guys jumping across buildings in [Maltese capital] Valletta. We’ve got [stunt man] Damian Walters doing a 120-foot leap of faith, without any rope, into a bag, so it’s pretty incredible to see."
The movie has also taken inspiration from The Matrix. "I’ve always thought about The Matrix when we’ve approached this," Fassbender said. "This idea of DNA memory elevates it from a basic fantasy genre [piece], because you have something an audience can actually believe in. Then the journey becomes so much more elevated, because you’re on board in a different way."
Fassbender is joined by Marion Cotillard and Jeremy Irons, while Justin Kurzel is directing. Assassn's Creed will be released in cinemas on December 26th.
