Turning a video game into a movie is a tough nut to crack, so we caught up with Michael Fassbender to talk about the challenges with Assassin’s Creed.

The actor opened up about whether he had any experience with the games before landing the gig (“Negative”) and what attracted him to the video game adaptation in the first place. He also digs into what he learned while serving as both a star and producer on a project, and how to balance those various duties. It’s an interesting interview, and though the film has pretty much been assassinated by critics, it’s nice to hear the passion behind the adaptation.

Assassin’s Creed is out now in theaters.
