Im doing a little pre production marketing for a short film our studio is going to produce. We are spitballing different settings that we could place our assassin in. If you could help us out on it that would be great!

-1920's/1930's (Prohibition-Mobster feel)
-1940's (WWII)
-1960's
etc. etc.

Were open to all ideas, so it doesnt have to be just from the 1900's. Thanks so much!

Just so you know, the 1900s would be the 20th Century.

That being said, I'd prefer it to be as early as possible. I'm not really a fan of these modern Assassin fan-films that everyone seems to like to make.

If i had to choose any era in the 20th century it would have to be the 1940s or present day, really an assassins creed movie should be set far in the past though.

If it's going to be modern era it might as well be now or future. Desmond in AC3 with the silenced pistol and all that would have been really good if the coding had been tighter for those particular segments.

i don't think the film needs to follow the main story of the games exactly, kinda like the prince of persia movie it should just take inspiration and follow the overall plot. they need to focus on an assassin we already know though, i think but best idea is to focus on connor and change some things to accommodate all the other info on the temples etc.

Around Ezios time would be ideal imo but I guess Connors time would be fine too, but no later

The man said 'fan film', people... Not another game.


OT- a Roaring Twenties/Mobster themed AC film could be cool.

The cold war would probably be pretty cool. I bet a lot of secret stuff happened then that the public knows nothing about. Could make for an interesting fan-movie

i clicked 1930's, but i believe both NYC's Chrysler and Empire State Buildings were completed and opened in 1929. now there is a couple of Viewpoint climbs...but, and a big but, i would make them more of an up & down & find your way, ala "I Am Alive" climbing/tomb puzzle(s). back then they were doing a ton of street excavations too, to install subways and utility infrastructures as well.

speaking of I Am Alive....anyone think that the game was scooped up by Ubisoft for them to work on some signature Assassins Creed stuff? as i read it, that game was begun like 10 years ago, but wallowed in the muck for years before Ubi got it.

taking that a step further....anyone also thinking that Watchdogs was begun and fleshed out some as a possibility for an AC? then it got too good, too different, or too off the path...keyword in all that is "good", and it became a title all it's own. Ezio was afterall, not afraid of technology, with Leo's help.

also...anyone see a movie called "Haywire"? it's got some stars in it, some biggies, plus Fassbender is in it too...pure coincidence. but, there is a chase sequence in it that was pure AC!!!!!!! theres even a small scene where a pursuer is running down an alley, then the camera pans up to the rooftops to see our female hero jumping across....gave me AC chills!!!!

anyway....1920's/1930's tops....anything else would be too modern day for a game with history so much in it's DNA.


and anyways :p there were some modern day scenes in AC3...where Sean was wondering if he could climb in the Animus himself, "when all this was over"....to do some research....and, i'm pretty sure that Desmond even wondered "just how far back could it go?" that leads me to hoping one day that the game will be set in the just-post-First Civilization-disaster era. there should be plenty of high places left, as well as desolation. there had to be a first group of DNA enabled peeps trying to dominate (Templars), creating the need for another group of DNA enabled peeps (Assassins) to oppose them. "Assassins Creed - Beginnings"

can i get an Amen from the choir?

1960's Cold War.

1960's Cold War.
100% agree!

Hey, just a tip, try to research if there are actually any lore explaining assassin activities in the 60's (I'm sure there are), and see if you can find the name of an Assassin in that time period as well. The closer to the canon, the better it is!

Present day, futuristic.
Maybe they can make it look futuristic without mentioning the year just like The Hunger Games.
