Ariane Labed Joins ASSASSIN’S CREED Film

imageAccording to Deadline, Ariane Labed (The Lobster) has been casted in an unspecified role in the upcoming movie adaptation Assassin’s Creed based on the popular Videogame of the same name. Recently the film had lost Ex Machina star Alicia Vikander, who decided to ditch the project and go to Bourne 5. If anything Labed might be playing the love interest to Michael Fassbender. She now joins Fassbender and Marion Cotillard.

Here’s a summary of the first game:

The game centers around the use of a machine dubbed the “Animus”, which allows its user to view the genetic memories of his or her ancestors, centering around the protagonist, a bartender named Desmond Miles. As Desmond relives the memories of one of his ancestors, the Assassin Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad who lived in the Holy Land during the Third Crusade, details of a battle between two ancient sects – the Knights Templar and the Assassin Order – emerge as both scour for an artifact known only as a “Piece of Eden.”
