The Watch Dogs movie has officially started filming

Back in March, we reported that a film based on Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs IP was in development, directed by Mathieu Turi and starring Sophie Wilde. In a surprising announcement, the team have confirmed that the Watch Dogs movie is already underway, with filming having now started.

Making the announcement on Twitter, Ubisoft shared the following message, simply stating: “Lights_Camera_Action.exe #WatchDogsMovie // @NewRegency” – alongside an image of a clapperboard with the film’s name on it.

As mentioned in the tweet, the Watch Dogs film is being produced by ‘New Regency’, known for films such as The Lighthouse, Bohemian Rhapsody, The Revenant and 2016’s Assassin's Creed – among many others.

It is interesting to see Watch Dogs return in the form of a film, especially as the series had essentially been killed off following the poor reception of Watch Dogs Legion.

Still, it will be interesting to see whether Watch Dogs winds up working well as a film – and whether this will bring renewed interest in the games.
