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.

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