Further to our reports on the upcoming Dead Rising movie (here), it seems the movie now has a director in place.
Zach Lipovsky, director of Leprechaun: Origins, has signed on at Legendary Pictures and Crackle to helm the zombie videogame adaptation say The Wrap.
“Sony’s Crackle will give the 90-minute feature an exclusive digital release in the U.S. before the film receives a multi-platform release on SVOD, VOD, DVD and TV, while Content Media Corp. (“Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn”) will distribute both feature-length and episodic formats on international platforms.”
The script is by Tim Carter and he will produce with Tomas Harlan – the duo were responsible for the online series Mortal Kombat: Legacy. It will also be produced by Transformers’ Lorenzo Di Bonaventura.
No word on release dates or stars yet.
