A short look at the film adaptation of Dead Rising has surfaced.


Transformers director Lorenzo di Bonaventura headed the project and it was directed by Zach Lipovsky.

It stars comedy actor Rob Riggle as Frank West, along with Academy Awards nominated actress Virginia Madsen (Candyman, Sideways), Dennis Haysbert (24), Meghan Ory (Once Upon a Time), and Jesse Metcalfe (Desperate Housewives).

Dead Rising: Watchtower also stars Aleks Paunovic, Harley Morenstein and Keegan Connor Tracy.

Here’s the synopsis per the trailer description:

“Dead Rising: Watchtower 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.”

It will be available digitally on Crackle from March 27 on PC and through the Crackle mobile, PlayStation and Xbox app.
