I’m surprised it took as long as it did for us to get a live-action adaptation of Capcom’s Dead Rising series, looking at the popularity of said games and the publisher’s track record, which includes the insanely successful Resident Evil adaptations. Unlike that series, Dead Rising: Watchtower will come exclusively to video-on-demand services, starting with its debut on Crackle on March 27.
In this exclusive clip from the lovely folks at Fangoria, we’re treated to a quick look at what appears to be the beginning of a zombie apocalypse.
Dead Rising: Watchtower is written by Tim Carter (Sleeping Dogs) and stars Rob Riggle (“The Daily Show”) as photojournalist Frank West, Jesse Metcalfe (John Tucker Must Die), Virginia Madsen (Sideways), Dennis Haysbert (Wreck it Ralph) and Meghan Ory (Vampire High).
