Comic-Con will premiere an animated Assassin's Creed short; wait'll you hear who's making it

The filmmaker Rob Zombie and Tony Moore, co-creator of The Walking Dead, will premiere an animated short "inspired by Assassin's Creed Unity" at San Diego Comic-Con, according to a listing on the official schedule.

The short will be shown at a Q&A and demo for the game, introducing Arno, the new protagonist, and promising additional details not yet announced for the latest entry in Ubisoft's annual video game franchise.

For those attending, the panel will take place on July 25 from 2 to 3 p.m. in Room 6BCF.

Zombie, well known for fronting the band White Zombie before embarking on a solo career and then filmmaking, has taken on several jobs related to video gaming and comic books in the past. He composed the original score for Twisted Metal 3, and has had voice acting roles in Spider-Man: The New Animated Series and Justice League Unlimited. He wrote and directed the 2007 remake of Halloween as well as a sequel.

He and Moore have worked together before; Moore has contributed a cover to Zombie's Spookshow International series.
