Ubisoft asking fans who should play Aiden in Watch Dogs movie

Poll includes Tobey Maguire, Henry Cavill, Ryan Gosling, Paul Walker, Tom Cruise, Clive Owen, Robert Downey Jr., Andrew Garfield, Brad Pitt, and Edward Norton.

by

Ubisoft has launched a new online poll asking fans who they would like to see play the role of Aiden Pearce in the upcoming Watch Dogs movie.

The list includes Hollywood action movie stars like Tobey Maguire, Henry Cavill, Ryan Gosling, Paul Walker, Tom Cruise, Clive Owen, Robert Downey Jr., Andrew Garfield, Brad Pitt, and Edward Norton.

At press time, Cruise is the frontrunner with 33 percent of the votes, followed by Norton (24 percent), and Downey Jr. (23 percent). It is not clear what Ubisoft plans to do with the results of the poll.

Ubisoft has a total of six movies in the pipeline. In addition to Watch Dogs, the French publisher is making movies based on its Far Cry, Rabbids, Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell, and Ghost Recon franchises. In all instances, Ubisoft will retain creative control.

Watch Dogs launches later this year on current- and next-generation consoles, as well as PC.

Meryl Streep, Chuck Norris or Will Smith. Maybe the Marshmallow Man too.

A little early to be talking about casting for a movie based on a game that hasn't even come out. They sure would look silly if the game bombs.

i am going to say this in TONS of respect because i respect the people on here, i respect the people who make games, i respect people who make movies, etc. they all are GREAT actors for playing Adian but could i respectfully suggest something because i can see him looking good with that bandana across his face.... Tobey McQuire... the reason why is because he looked good in both Spider-man 1 and 2... and... i love Andrew Garfield as well.

Are people fucking serious?! Tom Cruise?! The only person worse than that is Tobey Maguire! I wouldn't see the movie then... I already had Clive Owen in my head as someone who could play Aiden Pearce before any movie announcement so glad he's up there. Downey Jr. is a no but Edward Norton might be a decent fit

i'de vote for both tom cruise and robert downy Jr , but robert has a humour side of him, so that gives tom cruise the advantage because the watch dogs aiden's a seriouse guy , waaaaay to serious for humour

I've got it, I've got it.  It should be: NOONE.  Because you SHOULDN'T make a movie out of a VIDEO GAME.  How on earth can you stuff 12-60 hours worth of awesome into a 2 hour popcorn package?

David Mason should play Mr Bean on the new watch puppies movie and JJ Abrams will direct it, while Dragovich is the bad guy in the watch puppies movie!

@spectreSE7EN I just hope they don't release another terrible game movie before I play the game(which looks really good) and ruin it for me.

Could you imagine if you had to watch the Super Mario Brother's live action movie before you got to play the games?

I would probably never have played a Mario game lol.

@Holy-Rapture I agree. If tom Cruise or Toby Maguire played Aiden Pierce it would be horrible. Clive Owen for sure!
