According to VarietyAssassin's Creed producer Jean-Julien Baronnet has been brought on by Gearbox to adapt the classic game title into a feature film.

The outlet also mentions that as of right now, Paramount is no longer involved. Previously we'd reported that Paramount, as well as Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes, were two of the studios/production companies working on the project.
