Michael Fassbender is reportedly in line to star in the sequel to the first 'Assassin's Creed' movie, which is to be released later this year
The second 'Assassin's Creed' movie is in the works - with Michael Fassbender reportedly on board.
The first movie based on the popular video game is to be released later this year with the Hollywood star set to appear as main character Callum Lynch/ Aguilar, and there are already said to be plans for a sequel.
According to website The Tracking Board, Fassbender looks set to star in and produce the second motion picture in the franchise.
The website states: "That the studio is already laying the groundwork for the sequel is hardly surprising, given the international appeal of both the game and its star, Fassbender.
"But sceptics of video game-based films may interpret this move as a sign of confidence from those involved that, unlike previous attempts to bring popular video game properties to the big screen, 'Assassin's Creed' could not only work - but thrive."
While the film takes the name from the Ubisoft game series, the storyline and character played by the 38-year-old star was specially created for the first film.
The 'Assassin's Creed' game franchise tells the story of the age old battle between the peace-craving Templars and Assassins.
The movie will see Lynch discover he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society when he delves into his past.
