Crackle has picked up the U.S. rights to a film adaptation of the popular Capcom zombie survival video game series "Dead Rising".
Set during a large-scale zombie outbreak, four people must evade infection while also pursuing the root of the epidemic and the government conspiracy behind it.
Tim Carter is penning the feature and will produce with Tomas Harlan through their production company Contradiction Films (which produced web series "Mortal Kombat: Legacy"). Lorenzo di Bonaventura ("Transformers," "G.I. Joe") will executive produce.
Crackle will debut the feature-length film in the United States, after which it will be released on SVOD, DVD, VOD and TV. Content Media will also make the work available in feature-length and episodic formats on all international platforms.
