Rumor: Assassin’s Creed Movie May Have A Director

Details about progress on the Assassin's Creed movie have been trickling out for some time, and the latest rumor reveals who might be directing the film.

According to a rumor from film website TwitchFilm, Swedish director Daniel Espinosa, known in the United States for the 2012 Safe House, may be directing the upcoming Assassin's Creed film adaptation.

The director is one of the last pieces of the Assassin's Creed film puzzles as a star (Michael Fassbender), a writer (Michael Lesslie), and a release date (August 2015, pushed back from May) have all been decided. Fassbender also said that the Assassin's Creed movie is definitely happening back in October.

Our Take
Daniel Espinosa's film Safe House scored a 53% on Rotten Tomatoes, which isn't a particularly impressive score, but it's not always fair to rank a director based on a single project. There are certainly worse film makers out there that could tackle the project, many of them with films based on video games already under their belts. Assassin's Creed has potential to be an interesting film, and I'm curious to see what it looks like when (and if) it all comes together.

Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD Available Today For PlayStation 3

The formerly Vita exclusive Assassin's Creed III Liberation is available on PlayStation 3 as of today.

The HD version of the game has a few changes from the Vita version that released over a year ago. First off, the game drops the roman numerals from its title. On Vita, the game is called Assassin's Creed III Liberation, while the PlayStation 3 version of the game is called Assassin's Creed Liberation HD. Other arguably more worthwhile changes include complete graphical and audio overhauls, new missions, and the ability to use Aveline de Grandpré's whip as both a weapon and tool of navigation.

For our review of the Vita version of the game, head here. You can also check out our Test Chamber for the game below. The PC version of Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD launches tomorrow.

Our Take
This along with the recent Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow – Mirror Of Fate HD show a trend in mobile games getting upgraded ports to console. This is a trend I like. What I really want though, is the ability to play my 3DS games on my Wii U. Nintendo has done it before with the Super Game Boy for the Super Nintendo, and the Game Boy Advance Player for the GameCube. Both the Wii U and the 3DS have two screens. It seems like something Nintendo could make happen.
