Crackle and Legendary Announce ‘Dead Rising: Watchtower’ Cast
Crackle is working with Legendary Digital Media on the feature film “Dead Rising: Watchtower,” and now they have announced the central cast. The zombie apocalypse tale will star Jesse Metcalfe, Meghan Ory, Virginia Madsen, and Dennis Haysbert.
Tim Carter wrote the film, which will debut exclusively on Crackle in the US at an as yet unspecified date. “Dead Rising: Watchtower” gets its inspiration from the Dead Rising game franchise, published by Capcom.
Carter will also produce the film alongside Tomas Harlan under independent production company, Contradiction Films. The company was also behind other gaming based content, having produced the web series, “Mortal Kombat: Legacy.”
Lorenzo di Bonaventura will executive produce the Dead Rising movie, which will become available on SVOD, DVD, VOD, and television just after it premieres on Crackle.
London-based Content Media Corporation will distribute the film, splitting it up into episodes, as well, on all platforms.Tags: Capcom, Content Media Corporation, Contradiction Films, Crackle, dead rising, dead rising: watchtower, dennis haysbert, feature film, gaming, jesse metcalfe, legendary digital media, meghan ory, Virginia Madsen, zombies
