Crackle Picks Up Dead Rising Movie

Dead Rising 3

I hope you’re hungry for more zombies.

Legendary Pictures is teaming up with Crackle to produce a feature-length film based on the Dead Rising games. The movie will debut first on Crackle, and then be chopped up into a web series for its release on SVOD, DVD, VOD, and TV. Like the games, the new Dead Rising adaptation will tell the story of a large-scale zombie outbreak, and focus on a group of four survivors. It’s unclear if the four lead characters will be based on any of the heroes from the games.

The new Dead Rising feature is being written by Tim Carter, who also worked on the Mortal Kombat: Legacy digital series and wrote the video game Sleeping Dogs. He actually announced the project on EP Live, and you can watch that entire interview by clicking here.

In related news, Capcom has announced that the PC version of the latest game, Dead Rising 3, will launch September 5. Don’t forget that the hilarious expansion Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha was released last week on the Xbox One.
