"Assassin's Creed" movie is fast approaching!

And while Michael Fassbender has remained tighlipped about the movie's details, Head of Content Azaïzia Aymar has finally shared details about what to expect in the movie.

Blastr was able to caption Aymar's Twitter feed, where he discussed important details and even possible spoilers about "Assassin's Creed."

Based on the game, Michael Fassbender, who is set to play the lead character in the movie is going to portray two characters, the modern-day Callum Lynch, "and Aguilar will be his ancestor in the past," Aymar tweeted.

Apparently there will be no Altair, Ezio or Connor, but Aymar promised that, "It's possible you may find some familiar faces."

Additionally, Aymar explained that "we share the same universe. Elements of the film have consequences, as in our games, comics, and books."

And while there are too much details in the game, Aymar assured fans that "Assassin's Creed" movie is not going to overwhelm viewers who have yet to play the game.

"Trying not to overwhelm fans or newcomers w/ tons of references. The focus was on crafting an elegant story!"

And while Aymar failed to mention anything about the Michael Fassbender's supposed enemy in the film, he did assure that, "We may have surprises for you!"

In an interview with Game Spot, Michael Fassbender gamely shared why the movie took so long to develop.

"You say it's a long time, but what I've found - it's all new to me, but starting to develop scripts and work on them, they take time," Fassbender explained.

The 38-year-old German actor also revealed that "Assassin's Creed" movie shooting will finally start this month.

"It just takes time to get a good story together and we really want to do it right. It's exciting. It's going to start this year, we'll be filming in September."

And in a separate interview with Movie Pilot, Fassbender further explain how a big movie production could be a hindrance in producing such an extensive game like "Assassin's Creed."

"That's always the challenge of something that's so dense, to really find something and pare it down and basically, there are so many elements to it, so trying to translate that to an audience, you have to pick key things," the actor explained. "So yes, that is part of it, getting through the density of it and paring down and engaging a simple story."

"Assassin's Creed" movie release date is scheduled to hit theaters on Dec. 21, 2016.
