The Dead Rising games started out as a simple concept: you're trapped in a shopping centre with loads of zombies, and everything you touch can be made into a weapon. Like most games, it had problems and it all got a bit ridiculous in the end. Now though, there's a Dead Rising movie in the works, which looks equally ridiculous.
It's called Dead Rising: Watchtower, and it's classic zombie B-movie from the looks of the trailer.
Here's the synopsis:
“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. “The Dead Rising” game franchise has sold over 7.6 MM copies worldwide. Publisher Capcom has sold over 100 MM game copies worldwide, including juggernauts “Resident Evil,” “Street Fighter” and “Mega Man.”
Dead Rising: Watchtower will be streaming on Crackle from 27 March.
