Uh…shouldn't we at least have access to the game before making this decision?
It's not surprising that Ubisoft wants to turn their new IP Watch Dogs into a movie. That's just par for the course these days.
But what is moderately surprising is that the publisher is asking gamers who should play protagonist Aiden Pearce in the film. The list holds some big star power: Tobey Maguire, Henry Cavill, Ryan Gosling, Paul Walker, Tom Cruise, Clive Owen, Robert Downey Jr., Andrew Garfield, Brad Pitt and Edward Norton. Right now, Cruise has the lead at 30% while Edward Norton has 21% of the vote and Downey Jr. has 20%. Personally, I'd go with either Norton or Owen, based on what I know of Pearce.
Ubisoft is into the movie thing lately. They've got films in the works for Far Cry , Assassin's Creed , Splinter Cell and Ghost Recon as well. But what are the chances of any of them turning out decent…? Well, anyway, I'll still want to play Watch Dogs before deciding on a lead actor.
