Production is now underway on the live-action Watch Dogs movie.

French genre filmmaker Mathieu Turi has posted a photo on Instagram confirming that filming has begun on the live-action “Watch Dogs” movie based on the famed Ubisoft video game.

“The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds And Snakes” star Tom Blyth and “Talk to Me” breakout Sophie Wilde lead the cast of the film adaptation of a game series that has had over 50 million players over the course of three entries to date.

The story of the games unfolds in fictionalized versions of real-life modern day cities which are all run by ctOS, software which offers centralised control over all major infrastructure systems across entire cities including subway lines, electricity grids, surveillance cameras and traffic control systems.

The games follow hacker protagonists caught up in the criminal underworlds of their respective cities who are able to use their phone as a means to both lift people’s personal data and manipulate the environment around them from door locks to street lights.

Christie LeBlanc (“Oxygen”) and Victoria Bata (“Fate: The Winx Saga”) are penning the script for the film. Story details remain under wraps, and no release date has yet been set.
