A Watch Dogs feature film is in development by Ubisoft Motion Pictures in collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment and New Regency, Ubisoft has announced.

"Since both Sony and Ubisoft have movie and video game branches, this deal creates exceptional opportunities for us to merge the realms of the story-based cinematic experience with the interaction of the video game," said Jean-Julien Baronnet, chief executive officer, Ubisoft Motion Pictures. "In addition, Sony Pictures and New Regency have deep production expertise and are letting us maintain a strong creative voice in the film's development. Together, we're confident we can deliver a movie that builds upon the excitement that the game is already generating.”

There's currently no information on casting or a release date.

The film joins projects in development based on Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon, Assassin's Creed and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell franchises.

The game goes on sale on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U on November 22, 2013, with PS4 and Xbox One versions due at the new console launches.

oh for gods sake the games not even out yet and theyre already planning a movie?! ive always questioned the purpose of movie spinoffs, why do we need a movie of everything when hollywood is so morally and creatively bankrupt most of the time, but this just takes the cake.
