The project comes courtesy of Legendary Digital Media and will stream on Sony’s Crackle initially before being released on SVOD, DVD, VOD and TV. Tim Carter will write and produce with Tomas Harlan through their Contradiction Films banner, which previously produced the Mortal Kombat: Legacy YouTube series, and distributed Microsoft’s Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn.
Transformers franchise producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura takes on the role of executive producer for this project. No director has been attached just yet.
In all honesty, Dead Rising could be a tough franchise to capture properly, but we’re curious to see how it pans out. It's not yet known what character the movie will focus on and the tone of the movie is what most fans will be eager to see.
