Sony circles Assassin's Creed movie deal

InFamous flick also in the pipeline.

Sony Pictures is close to signing a deal to bring Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed franchise to the big screen, according to insider sources.

According to Variety, negotiations between the two companies are in the final stages, with Sony apparently beating out a number of other studios for the hotly-contested film rights.

Neither party would confirm the news, though an Ubisoft spokesperson commented, "As we've stated before, Ubisoft is actively looking for film opportunities for our top brands. There is high interest from top Hollywood studios to collaborate on these brands."

Variety's report also mentions that Sony is working on a film based on its InFamous PlayStation 3 franchise.
