Honey Buzz ~ Rumors STILL Swirling Over 'Assassin's Creed' Movie...

All we know at the moment about the film version of Assassin's Creed is that the release date has been officially moved to sometime in 2016. Earlier this week, a random Internet gentleman made up a rumor that one Robert Downey Jr. had signed on to play Leonardo Da Vinci, who makes an appearance in Assassins Creed II. The problem there is, unlike normal internet rumors that just bounce around message boards, this one was picked up by a MAJOR gaming website who then reported it as if it were actual news. Cue one giant, simultaneous online:

One by one, sites realized that the original source was, how do you say, less than reliable (cough cough full of shit cough cough), and had to back track. Not only does the Da Vinci game timeline not synch up with the planned storyline for the Assassin's Creed film, I think we all know that RDJ has his hands a little fucking full over the next two years. So if he DID sign on for even a small role in a film, it would be massive news.

So again, what DO we know about this movie that is officially two years off?

Him. We know him. Nothing else matters.

Until anyone tells us otherwise, Michael Fassbender, he of EVERY Honey's fantasies, is slated to star in the film, which he may also produce. Justin Kurzel, who has a history directing Shakespeare which makes him a tremendously bold choice, is still signed on to direct. The main problem now is that film's script is apparently going through re-writes, which completely throws off the production schedule, which could then lead to a change in cast and/or crew.

If we hear any REAL news or developments on the Assassin's Creed film, we will be sure to let you know!
