Sony pick up Assassin’s Creed movie?

Sony Pictures may well be the studio to bring Altair, Ezio and Desmond to the big screen.

Variety is reporting that the company is currently carrying out final negotiations with Ubisoft to acquire the rights for an Assassin’s Creed film adaption. Ubisoft are keen to maintain creative control of the project though, so expect the film not to stray too far from the games.

We know that game-to-film adaptions have a tendency to, well, suck, but the potential for a Creed flick is undeniable. Let’s hope this one works out, whenever it does show up.
