Michael Fassbender, who will be playing the protagonist in the upcoming "Assassin's Creed" movie, has said that the film has taken a lot of inspiration from parkour stunts of "Assassin's Creed" video games and from the movie "The Matrix."

"Assassin's Creed" is the film adaptation of critically acclaimed video game series by Ubisoft and is one of the most awaited movies of 2016. Fassbender has assured the fans and viewers that they won't be disappointed with the movie as it will do justice to every element of the video games.

As reported by Screen Rant, Fassbender will be playing the character of Callum Lynch in the movie, who is one of the many protagonists in "Assassin's Creed" video game franchise. Fassbender said that the movie will be a live-action version of the video game.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Fassbender has also claimed that the movie will remind audience of the epic science fiction movie "The Matrix" as the storyline and stunt scenes in "Assassin's Creed" are inspired from that of "The Matrix."

Describing the production work of the movie, Fassbender said that the production team has made huge efforts to make the movie a real-life version of the video game and they are still looking for things that might make movie even more special.

Assuring the fans that the cast and crew are working real hard, Fassbender said: "The fans are really passionate, very specific, and they expect accuracy and historical detail. We're really trying to capitalise and feed on and enjoy the fun element. We're working hard to make this something special."

The 38-year-old actor also revealed that more emphasis has been put on practical stunts during the filming of the scenes.

"We have stunt guys jumping across buildings in [Maltese capital] Valletta. We've got [stunt man] Damian Walters doing a 120-foot leap of faith, without any rope, into a bag, so it's pretty incredible to see," Fassbender said.

Besides Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Callum turner and Michael Kenneth Williams will also join "Assassin's Creed" movie cast.

The movie will be directed by Justin Kurzel of "Macbeth" fame and is scheduled to release on Dec. 21, 2016.
