Watch Dogs Movie Starts Production This Summer

The upcoming Watch Dogs movie adaptation has its leads. New Regency announced today that Tom Blyth (The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes) and Sophie Wilde (Talk to Me) have been cast in the film, which will feature an original story set in the Watch Dogs universe and is slated to begin production later this summer.

The Watch Dogs franchise includes three games to date: Watch Dogs (2014), Watch Dogs 2 (2016), and Watch Dogs: Legion (2020). Each game features different stories in a world where hacker rebels attempt to fight injustices enabled by CTOS, a digital information system that links entire cities onto a single network. From Aiden Pearce in Chicago to Marcus Holloway in San Francisco to citizens in a dystopic London, members of the DedSec hacker organization use their advanced hacking apps and gadgets to undermine CTOS' oppressive reign and uncover corruption behind the system.

French genre director Mathieu Turi (The Deep Dark) is set to direct the Watch Dogs movie, and Christie LeBlanc (Oxygen) wrote the screenplay with revisions by Victoria Bata. New Regency's Yariv Milchan and Natalie Lehmann will produce alongside Ubisoft Film & Television's Margaret Boykin.

If you can't wait to dive into this high-stakes hacker world, be sure to check out Watch Dogs, Watch Dogs 2, and Watch Dogs: Legion, or play all three today with a Ubisoft+ Premium subscription. Stay tuned to Ubisoft News for more updates on the movie.
