The Wolverine, Minority Report scribe rewriting Assassin’s Creed movie

The screenplay for the forthcoming Assassin’s Creed movie, which was originally penned by English playwright Michael Lesslie, is being rewritten by screenwriter Scott Frank, whose previous authorial credits include The Wolverine, Minority Report and Marley & Me. He also wrote one episode of The Wonder Years in 1988, apparently.

“I’m rewriting Assassin’s Creed right now, and what I love about it is that I’ve never adapted a video game before and it has its own set of challenges,” Frank told Creative Screenwriting. “Especially in the world of rewrites, I love trying to do something completely different if I can. That’s how Marley & Me happened.”

Assassin’s Creed is currently slated to hit theaters on June 19, 2015, according to Box Office Mojo.
