Dead Rising: Watchtower

The Dead Rising video game franchise has sold over 7.6 MM copies worldwide since 2006. As the zombie survival game continues to grow in popularity, Capcom’s Dead Rising has now become a hot target for a live-action movie adaptation. In fact, there’s already a Dead Rising movie in the works and it’s scheduled to stream online through Crackle in the very near future.

Officially titled Dead Rising: Watchtower, is a feature-length movie based on the video game franchise which 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.

Starring Jesse Metcalfe, Meghan Ory, Virginia Madsen and Dennis Haysbert, Dead Rising: Watchtower is scheduled to stream online via Crackle on March 27, 2015.

Check out the slick poster and first trailer below to get an idea on whats to come.
