Ubisoft has picked up a number of movie based domain names for Watch Dogs, its newly announced action IP that was revealed at E3 2012.

The domain names were registered last month, including WatchDogsmovie.com, WatchDogsthemovie.com Watch-Dogsmovie.com and Watch-Dogsthemovie.com.

While Ubisoft hasn't confirmed anything yet, it would appear that the French publisher is interested in converting several of its key IPs to the big screen, with rumours of an Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell movie already on the cards.

Watch Dogs will be released for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2013.

Some good mindless videogame adaptations are always welcome to while away a few hours with the blokes. Trying for lasting success by casting wekk known Hollywood stars and footing a big budget, as was done in "Prince of Persia" won't mean they'll hang around for (as with "PoP"), but it's a welcome change from heavy dramas.

I suppose this could be interesting, but I can't help but feel they're jumping the gun on this one...

"Jumping the gun..." good one, Longsword. No pun intended, naturally:)
