Assassin’s Creed movie stuntman incredibly pulls off 125-ft leap after 35 years; Film characters remain unnamed?

Slated for release at the end of 2016, the Assassin’s Creed movie certainly offered something surprising for their avid players and fans. Recently, a stuntman was able to make a historic, record-breaking 125-feet leap for the film.

Those who have been playing Assassin’s Creed as an Xbox One and PS4 game play were already familiar with the daring stunts and leaps noticed all throughout the game. These acrobatic manoeuvres were seen most of the time in different versions of the game play.

Primarily, these iconic leaps were not initially thought as possible in real life until the stuntman named Damien Walters did it. He was able to perform a 125-feet jump which has not been bested since 35 years. According to director Justin Kurzel, he wanted to make every scene as real as possible.

That’s why the entire production doesn’t want to rely solely on visual effects. That plan included the iconic Spanish assassin Aguilar de Nerha (played by actor Michael Fassbender) leaps.

Based from the Assassin’s Creed plot, the main character is a descendant of the Assassins’ mysterious secret society wherein he has to use his deadly skills to fight against the powerful Templar organization.

Aside from the Callum Lynch, he will be with other video game characters. However, David Wildgoose, the movie’s armorer, told Entertainment Weekly that the fans should not expect specific roles in the film.

Rather the production’s choice based from their popularity and enjoyment factors. These two characteristics were their basis for reprising main characters. But during the interview, he gave a hint that Abstergo CEO Alan Rikkin might be counted in Assassin’s Creed movie.

“They’re not main characters from the games, but they’re very famous characters that the fans will probably enjoy,” he said. That means no exact role will be revealed until its official release this year.

Assassin’s Creed movie premiere is already scheduled this coming December 21, 2016 under 20th Century Fox.
