Crackle (owned by Sony) will be releasing a full feature length zombies movie about the Dead Rising world. This is strange because the latest Dead Rising game (Dead Rising 3) was only available to the Xbox One and the PC. Contradiction Films (Mortal Kombat: Legacy web series) will take care of the production will even Legendary Pictures joining in on the Dead Rising movie. I played the game and this franchise has some real luster to it. Contradiction Films will be bringing over Tim Carter to write the script. The Dead Rising film will premiere on Crackle first then DVD, VOD and TV.
Update (August 25, 2014) - Zach Lipovsky, the director of Leprechaun: Origins (2014) has been tapped to direct the Dead Rising movie. Sony will make the live-action movie adaptation a full 90 minutes feature.
