Dead Rising 3Dead Rising, the popular Capcom zombie survival video game, is being adapted into a feature film. Legendary Entertainment sold the domestic film rights to Crackle, where it will premiere in the U.S.

The feature will be written by Tim Carter, who will also produce with Tomas Harlan under their Contradiction Films banner. Contradiction most recently produced the hit digital series Mortal Kombat: Legacy.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers, G.I. Joe) will executive produce. Dead Rising takes place during a large-scale zombie outbreak. When a mandatory government vaccine fails to stop the infection from spreading, the four leads must evade infection while also pursuing the root of the epidemic, with all signs pointing to a government conspiracy. Politics, public paranoia, and media coverage play an important role in the story’s narrative.

Crackle will debut Dead Rising as a feature-length film in the U.S. After Crackle’s exclusive distribution run, the show will also be released on SVOD, DVD, VOD and TV.

Content Media will distribute Dead Rising in both feature-length and episodic formats for all international platforms.

The Dead Rising franchise has sold over 6.5 million copies worldwide. Publisher Capcom has sold over 100 million game copies worldwide, including juggernauts Resident Evil, Street Fighter and Mega Man.
