Dead Rising Digital Film in the Works

Dead Rising is next in the video game world to get a film adaptation. The film will be shown on Sony‘s video service Crackle, similar to how Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn was a digital film as well.

The Dead Rising film will be directed by Tim Carter and produced by Tomas Harlan. This isn’t the first time these two have dealt with bringing a video game property to film. Their company, Contradiction Films, is responsible for the Mortal Kombat web series, Mortal Kombat: Legacy. The Dead Rising film will also have the talent of Lorenzo di Bonaventura who produced Transformers and G.I. Joe and will be apart of Legendary Digital Media.

If the new Dead Rising film follows the footsteps of the digital feature, Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, it could be well received, which is hard to say about a lot of video game films. Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn even earned an Emmy nomination.

We’ll keep you updated as more news develops on the new Dead Rising digital film.
