Jul 03, 2024 7:04 PM

Ubisoft has kickstarted production on the much-anticipated Watch Dogs movie over a decade after its initial announcement. The movie's filming was confirmed via Ubisoft's social media with a behind-the-scenes photo. Directed by Mathieu Turi, known for his work in The Deep Dark and Meander, specific plot details remain under wraps. The cast includes breakout stars Tom Blyth from Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, and Sophie Wilde from Talk to Me. Blyth and Wilde’s roles are yet to be disclosed. Christie LeBlanc wrote the original script, with Victoria Bata making recent revisions. The film is produced by New Regency's Yariv Milchan, Natalie Lehmann, and Ubisoft’s Margaret Boykin. Watch Dogs' franchise began in 2014 and follows hackers manipulating technology to achieve their goals, with the latest game set in London, released in 2020.

When will the Watch Dogs movie be released?

No release date has been announced for the Watch Dogs movie as of now.

Watch Dogs debuted in 2014, becoming famous for its innovative gameplay focused on hacking and digital manipulation within an open-world environment. The first game featured hacker Aiden Pearce in a tech-driven Chicago. The sequel introduced different characters and was set in San Francisco, while the latest entry, Watch Dogs: Legion, allowed players to control multiple characters in a near-future London. Each game has built upon the series' central theme of hacking and technology as a means of both liberation and control.
