Ubisoft's Lawyers Surely on Planes Over Assassin's Creed 'Inspired' Movie!
An "upcoming Tamil superhero film" called Velayudham or Velayutham depending on how well you speak Tamil, has probably had Ubisoft creatives fighting with Ubisoft lawyers because the movie bares something of a resemblance to Assassin's Creed.

We'd imagine the creatives saying something like, "Wow! What an awesome way to get the games known in India. And let's face it guys, it's not as if we didn't read The Papacy and the Levant, 1204-1571: The Fifteenth Century By Kenneth M. Setton quite heavily. And it's a cool looking movie! Just leave 'em."

Then we'd imagine the legal people saying, "Ext-suerate! Ex-suerate! Must protect brand Must protect braaaaaaaaaaaand!!!" before hoping in an all expenses trip to "someplace in India".

Watch the footage (film, no lawyers) and have a laugh.

Cheers Kotaku

Hey if you can pass on the news about this movie from the same language called 7am Arivu which has the actual Assassins Creed storyline copied that'd be great too.
