Dead Rising Film Adaptation in the Works

dead rising 3

Frank West may have covered wars, but it’s about time there was a full-length feature depicting the events of Dead Rising. 

According to Variety, a full-length, digital film based on Capcom’s Dead Rising series is on the way for Sony’s Crackle video service. This film will have Michael Bay’s ‘Transformers’ series’ longtime producer, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, as executive producer. Tomas Harlan of Contradiction Films is set to write and produce the project, but a director has yet to be announced. Contradiction Films’ last major project was the ‘Mortal Kombat: Legacy’ series.

The Dead Rising film will be the debut project of Legendary Digital Media and will be distributed by Content Media, which distributed ‘Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn.’ The untitled Dead Rising film will debut exclusively on Crackle and will eventually be released on DVD and various formats after its initial run.

“Dead Rising has a built-in fan base and rich characters and plot lines that are ideal for digital storytelling and on target for Legendary’s brand,” said Legendary Digital chief Tom Lesinski. “Crackle and Content are adept at distributing cutting-edge digital content and we look forward to delivering a highly engaging and cool series for a global audience.”

Hopefully someone realizes that Dead Rising is meant to be filled with over-the-top hilarity and tries to blend in sadistic humor throughout its zombie escapades.
