Assassin's Creed is one of the most talked about movies of 2016 and is based on the hit computer game of the same name. Fassbender is set to take on the central role of Callum Lynch and has served as producer on the film.

And the Oscar-nominated actor reveals that he was a fascinated by the premise of the script from the first time that he read it.

Speaking to Total Film about the movie, Fassbender said: "I thought it was a really cool concept to start from,

"I wanted to take an audience on a fantasy ride, but give them something that fits some sort of scientific theory. That was a really interesting element to the game."

Assassin's Creed sees Fassbender reunite with filmmaker Justin Kurzel, whom he worked with on the critically acclaimed Macbeth.

The movie also see him reunite with his Macbeth co-star Marion Cotillard. Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, and Michael Kenneth Williams complete an exciting cast list.

The movie will see Callum discover he is a descendant of the secret Assassins Society when he delves into his past and he must learn the skills of a killer to fight the Templars - historic enemies of the Assassins Society - in the modern world.

2016 has already been a hugely successful year for Fassbender with his first Best Actor Oscar nomination for his performance in Steve Jobs.

We are also going to be seeing plenty of him on the big screen as he has completed work on Trespass Against Us, X-Men: Apocalypse, Weightless, The Light Between Oceans, and The Snowman.

Assassin's Creed is released 30th December.
