Fresh off a rumor saying Paramount is considering a Splinter Cell film comes word that several domains have been registered for a movie version of Watch Dogs, the surprise sensation of E3 after a strongly positive debut.

Fusible, the domain watch dog watching Watch Dogs, says that just this week Ubisoft registered and, among others.



The timing of the registrations and the newness of the game (due for a 2013 release) make it a reasonable bet this is just a protective action to park ownership of a title, more than it is evidence of a deal actually in the works. Still, some day we're going to get the simultaneous release of a new video game and a movie based on it, instead of the other way around.

As for Splinter Cell, Deadline reported that Paramount is the frontrunner to land a >Splinter Cell film, not least because the company has a lot of experience producing a bunch of other Tom Clancy-branded films.
