The latest Netflix live-action series, Assassin’s Creed, has been reported to include Jeb Stuart as the writer. The video game adaptation is a greatly anticipated production that features mythology, history, deadly action, and brilliant parkour techniques.
Assassin’s Creed is a video game series that has many instalments, which were originally released on consoles. The video game series is a sandbox style, action-adventure, stealth video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. Although there are many sequels, the game hasn’t stayed true to the plot they were originally telling.
The original story was focused around the war between the Assassins and Templars as they look to track down the Pieces of Eden. The first games involved the protagonist in the present, diving into the memories of his past life, which would eventually lead to a game set in modern day. However, this concept was scratched and sequels of the series began to follow different stories set in other eras, including Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece.
The show adaptation was announced last October and is part of a deal between Netflix and Ubisoft. The aim is to develop live-action, animated, and anime TV shows based on the video games of popular franchises. As many fans know, the live-action movie, starring Michael Fassbender, was unable to deliver the expected result as the film received negative reviews, and wasn’t able to rake in enough funds to be considered a success. Hopefully, this production will be able to give what the Assassin’s Creed fandom want.
Jeb Stuart Joins Assassin’s Creed
The featured writer for this production was first reported by Variety, and its great that a renown individual is taking the reigns. Jeb Stuart is best known for creating Vikings: Valhalla, a continuation of the History Channel’s Vikings, and for composing Die Hard and The Fugitive. It will be interesting to see the version that Stuart will produce, but fans will have to wait to see. Hopefully we will see the return of the original idea, but confirmation has yet to be announced.
For now, there hasn’t been any release that will show fans what to expect in this new series. However, there are other Ubisoft adaptions coming soon, including Splinter Cell and Far Cry. May have to wait, however, there is going to be a lot of epic content to enjoy soon.
