Is Hollywood about to get a video game movie right? “Assassin’s Creed” is shaping up to have all the right ingredients.

Jeremy irons and Brendan Gleeson have now joined the already impressive cast. The pair will join the already cast Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard.


Irons is set to play the father of Cottilard’s character, Gleeson will play the father to the Calum Lynch character, played by Fassbender.

Fassbender and Cottilard are re-teaming with Macbeth director Justin Kurzel, with that movie opening to rave reviews. This video game adaptation seems to have all the right ingredients to succeed where so many others have failed.

“Assassins Creed” is due out 21 December 2016.
