Dead Rising is being made into a full-length digital movie by Legendary Digital Media. The film will be available on Sony’s Crackle service.
This is the first production from the company, and will be internationally distributed by Content Media Corp, the company responsible for the distribution of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn.
"Dead Rising has a built-in fan base and rich characters and plotlines that are ideal for digital storytelling and on target for Legendary’s brand,” said Legendary Digital chief Tom Lesinski (reported by Variety). "Crackle and Content are adept at distributing cutting-edge digital content and we look forward to delivering a highly engaging and cool series for a global audience."
Following the movie's release on Crackle, it will come to SVOD, DVD, VOD and TV. No official release date was announced for the movie.
