Now they just have to synchronize all the viewpoints

Ubisoft Motion Pictures and New Regency Productions have finished filming the Assassin's Creed movie, just over 11 months out from its scheduled release date.

Shooting wrapped Jan. 15, according to a tweet from Aymar Azaïzia, head of content for the Assassin's Creed franchise at Ubisoft.

The movie is simply called Assassin's Creed. It had entered production by mid-February 2015, following an announcement back in October 2012 that Ubisoft Motion Pictures, Ubisoft's internal division for films and television shows, had partnered with New Regency and distributor 20th Century Fox to make the film. Principal photography began in late August 2015.

Assassin's Creed tells an original story in the universe of Ubisoft's nine-year-old video game franchise. The film features an all-star cast led by Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs, 12 Years a Slave) as Aguilar, an Assassin in 15th-century Spain, as well as his modern-day descendant, Callum Lynch.

Fassbender is joined by Ariane Labed (Before Midnight), whose character is currently unnamed; in the production still above, she appears to be a fellow Assassin. The supporting cast includes Marion Cotillard (Midnight in Paris), Brendan Gleeson (Edge of Tomorrow) and Michael K. Williams (The Wire), along with Jeremy Irons (Die Hard With a Vengeance) as the CEO of Abstergo Industries.

Assassin's Creed, which is directed by Justin Kurzel, is set to hit theaters Dec. 21. You can see some more production stills on the UbiBlog.
