Screenwriter Scott Frank has been hired to re-write the still-in-development Assassin’s Creed movie, according to an interview posted on Creative Screenwriting.

Frank, who has been nominated for an Academy Award for his work on 1998′s Out of Sight, has also worked on titles such as Marley & Me, The Lookout, Flight of the Phoenix, Minority Report, and most recently The Wolverine.

“I’m rewriting Assassin’s Creed right now, and what I love about it is that I’ve never adapted a video game before and it has its own set of challenges,” said Frank. “Especially in the world of rewrites, I love trying to do something completely different if I can.”

The last thing we heard about this Assassin’s Creed movie was when Ubisoft announced their partnership with New Regency. Michael Fassbender, recently of X-Men: First Class and Prometheus fame, is set to star.
