Lowdown: Of all the games to make the jump to film so far, this one has one of the most intriguing hooks. If you haven't played the games, they're about a guy named Desmond who is the last in a genetic line of a family who have always served as assassins for secret societies. Using a machine called the Animus, Desmond is able to actually step into the lives of his ancestors and live through them, interacting with history as a result. It's a really unusual treasure hunt, and if they want to, they can certainly wring a couple of different films out of this. Michael Fassbender is a great hire, but until we know who's directing and see how they plan to handle the acrobatic action of the games, this remains a tantalizing question mark.
