Dead Rising movie to be distributed by Crackle

June 20th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Dead Rising is a game in which you play as one of four survivors during a zombie apocalypse who use pretty much anything that comes to hand to destroy the undead in as messy a way as possible. What’s not to love?

And now Legendary have sold the (US) domestic movie rights to Crackle where the now in production movie will premiere. It will be penned by Tim Carter who will co-produce with Tomas Harlan as Contradiction Films – they were the guys behind Mortal Kombat: Legacy.

The movie will be distributed in the US as a feature length, em, feature and in other areas it will be available episodically.

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

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
