[edit] Development

Ubisoft partnered up with Sony Entertainment and New Regency to develop the film. Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures has said ""Sony Pictures and New Regency are ideal partners for us, their deep production expertise and willingness to allow us to maintain a strong creative voice in the film means that we're on track to deliver a movie that can build upon the excitement that Watch Dogs already is generating as a game."
Hannah Minghella, president of production at Columbia Pictures went on to say "The themes and open gameplay of Watch Dogs lends itself perfectly to the big screen. The game has intense action and adventure, but the story focuses on information and the control of information, which we think will lead to an exciting thriller. It has tremendous potential as a motion picture and we're thrilled to have the opportunity to work closely with Ubisoft's internal creative team on the development of the project."
