Michael Kenneth Williams set for Assassin's Creed

Michael Kenneth Williams (12 Years A Slave) is certainly a man in demand. It was announced recently that he was joining Andy Garcia (Oceans 12) and Matt Walsh (Ted) in Paul Feig's (Bridesmaids) Ghostbusters. Now news arrives via Variety that he is also closing a deal to play one of the key supporting roles in Assassin's Creed.

Justin Kurzel (Snowtown) is directing the game adaptation, which reunites him with his Macbeth stars Michael Fassbender (Prometheus) and Marion Cotillard (Rust And Bone). Fassbender has the lead role of an everyman kidnapped by a mysterious, high tech organisation and forced to relive the memories of his assassin ancestors as he locates powerful artefacts.

How Cotillard, Ariane Labed (Before Midnight) and now Williams fit in to the plot is as yet unknown, though Variety has discovered that Williams' character will have a major stake in the story and is likely to continue if the first film births a franchise, promoting him to co-star. Read into that what you will.

He will shoot Ghostbusters, which is already in production, first and then move on to Assassin's Creed. He will also be seen in Jerry Jameson's Captive, which has yet to confirm a UK release date and spoof melodrama TV series The Spoils Before Dying, a sequel to The Spoils Of Babylon.
