Video game set to debut as digital feature…
Legendary Entertainment is developing the popular Capcom video game franchise Dead Rising into a feature film, and the domestic rights for the future have now been sold to crackle. The Dead Rising will premiere on the Crackle platform in the US.
The film is being written by Tim Carter and produced by Tomas Harlan under their Contradiction Films banner. Contradiction recently produced the Mortal Kombat: Legacy digital series. Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers, G.I. Joe) will executive produce the film.
The story follows the aftermath of a large-scale zombie outbreak. When a mandatory government vaccine fails to stop the infection from spreading, four people must evade infection and pursue the root of the epidemic. All signs point to a government conspiracy.
The film will debut in Crackle in the US. The film will then later be released on DVD, VOD, TV, and SVOD. Content Media will distribute the show in both feature-length and episodic formats for all international platforms.
