Dead Rising to be made into a movie

Did you think that the next videogame movie to come out would be the Ratchet and Clank movie coming out next year? Well it seems we are wrong as Capcom’s Dead Rising franchise is being adapted into a feature-length film that will stream first on Sony’s Crackle video service in the U.S., Variety reports.

Dead Rising will be directed by Tim Carter and produced by Tomas Harlan, the duo that co-owns Contradiction Films, which previously worked on the Internet smash hit series, Mortal Kombat: Legacy. It’s the first project for Legendary Pictures’ digital division, Legendary Digital Media. Transformers and G.I. Joe movie producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura will executive produce the digital feature.

 Don’t have Crackle? Don’t worry as after it’s run on Crackle, the Dead Rising movie will be available on-demand and on physical media. Content Media Corporation, which distributed Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn and will distribute Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, also based on a Capcom property, will handle the Dead Rising movie internationally.

Crackle apps are available for PlayStation and Xbox consoles, as well as mobile devices and smart TVs.
