The Dead Rising movie is one step closer to reality, because it’s sunk its teeth into a director.
The Wrap reports that the film will be helmed by Zach Lipovsky, the director behind the upcoming WWE horror movie Leprechaun: Origins. Before that, Lipovsky worked as a director and visual effects supervisor on plenty of short films and TV movies. Dead Rising will only be his second feature film, and his biggest project by far.
The Dead Rising film is being financed by Legendary Entertainment and Crackle. It will be a feature-length movie that will debut first on Crackle in its entirety, and then be chopped up and released episodically on other platforms around the globe. It was first announced earlier this year by producer/writer Tim Carter right here on epn.tv.
