Fans call for Tom Cruise to play lead in Watch Dogs movie
Top Gun, Mission Impossible star gets 37 percent of the vote, outpacing runner-ups Robert Downey Jr. and Edward Norton.
With 37 percent of the vote in a new Ubisoft-supported online poll, Top Gun and Mission Impossible star Tom Cruise is the fan's choice to play the role of Aiden Pearce in the upcoming Watch Dogs movie.
Behind Cruise is Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jr. (20 percent) and Fight Club lead Edward Norton (19 percent). The next most popular actor for the role is Fast and the Furious actor Paul Walker (11 percent).
Ubisoft launched the online poll last week. Cruise was the immediate front-runner. Other actors on the list include Tobey Maguire, Henry Cavill, Ryan Gosling, Clive Owen, Andrew Garfield, and Brad Pitt.
It is not clear what Ubisoft plans to do with the results of the poll and a representative for the company could not be reached for comment.
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.
