Assassin’s Creed film director Justin Kurzel is already prepared for a sequel, and even knows when he wants it to take place.
In a recent interview with french film website Premiere, Kurzel offered up some ideas for the path down which the film series should go.
“I thought about maybe not going too far back, maybe into, like, the ’50s in America.” Kurzel said. “You know, I think that could be a really interesting period around the Cold War. Traditionally, I think they’ve gone back further than that. Recent history is something I’m quite interested in. You can definitely kind of do a film-noir thing to it.”
He added that, while there are many time periods available for the narrative, the upcoming film’s setting of the Spanish Inquisition was a good place to start.
“I think there’s great scope there to kind of go into. I think you have to go into volatile points of history, that’s why The Spanish Inquisition work so well, because you got something the assassins could rally against in terms of the religious persecution that was going on there.”
The Assassin’s Creed film hits theaters on December 21st, and fans can get themselves in the zone with the movie’s final trailer.
