“Dead Rising: Watchtower” available on VOD in July

•• Following its release on Crackle’s streaming service back in March, live action video game adaptation Dead Rising: Watchtower is heading to VOD in International markets this July. Check out the trailer below:

Dead Rising: Watchtower follows Chase Carter (Jesse Metcalfe), a reporter trying to make it big – but the pursuit of his career-defining story leads him into the heart of a zombie-infested warzone. East Mission, Oregon is locked down after police find the bodies of what appear to be victims of a zombie attack. Zombies are not a new phenomenon, but outbreaks are uncommon. Past incidents were only just contained in time and the country is nervous. When two ambitious Net 2.0 reporters, Chase and his colleague Jordan, get inside the quarantine zone to report on a large group of civilians trapped in an inner city dome stadium, they realise they’re waiting for a rescue that isn’t coming. Many of those abandoned inside are survivors of past outbreaks who carry the zombie virus in their blood. They only survive by taking the antidote once every 24 hours — a drug called Zombrex. When the local drug supply mysteriously fails, a small crisis explodes into mass panic and catastrophe.

The story unfolds from two perspectives: survivors inside the city and officials and the media on the outside. Unlike virtually all other zombie narratives, the world hasn’t ended. The outbreak is a large-scale natural disaster that the rest of the world watches on TV. After Jordan manages to escape the quarantine zone, she sets out to unravel the conspiracy behind the failed Zombrex, while Chase is trapped inside with a few others like tough loner with a secret Crystal (Meghan Ory) and grief-stricken mother Maggie (Virginia Madsen), battling
to survive. Their perilous, action-packed journey to escape simultaneously forces them to question what they’re willing to do to survive and, ultimately, their own sense of humanity.

Dead Rising: Watchtower will be available for download on July 1st and is directed by Zach Lipovsky (Leprechaun: Origins) and written by Tim Carter (Mortal Kombat: Legacy), with a cast that includes Jesse Metcalfe (John Tucker Must Die), Meghan Ory (Once Upon a Time), Virginia Madsen (Candyman), Dennis Haysbert (24) and Rob Riggle (22 Jump Street).

•• Jeremy Irons, Virginia Madsen, AnnaSophia Robb and Rory Culkin have signed on to star in the action-comedy film Monumental.

The film, which will be directed by Brett Simon, is being shopped to foreign buyers at the Cannes film market by Kathy Morgan International. CAA is handling domestic rights. Eric Fischer and Brianna Lee Johnson from Dead Fish Films produced Monumental, which was written by Annie Burgstede and Chad Faust. The film will begin filming in July.

Directed by Brett Simon (Assassination of a High School President), Monumental is described as a high-octane romance.

An FBI agent (Madsen) is hot on their trail and closing in fast. As they speed across the country in search of freedom, their epic journey culminates in a fiery showdown.

The film is executive produced by Aaron Gilbert, Robert Odgen Barnum, 3 Point Capital, Ksana Golod, James Bryant and George Parra, with London Pacific Finance providing development funding.

Virginia Madsen talks Walter and looks back at Sideways

Virginia Madsen talks Walter and looks back at Sideways

•• Virginia Madsen is one classy lady! The veteran actress made her film debut in the early ‘80s movie Class, and went on to work with such iconic directors as David Lynch (Dune), Rob Reiner (Ghosts of Mississippi), and Francis Ford Coppola (The Rainmaker). But it was her role in Alexander Payne’s Sideways that earned her an Academy Award-nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Madsen would eventually work with legendary director Robert Altman on A Prairie Home Companion, and then appear in a string of high profile films including Firewall, The Astronaut Farmer, and The Number 23. Her latest film entitled Walter will open in theaters on March 13th.

Walter stars Andrew J. West (TV’s The Walking Dead) as the title character, a ticket-taker at the local cinema that believes he is the Son of God. He has agreed to decide the eternal fate of everyone he comes in to contact with. But when a ghost in purgatory (Justin Kirk) starts to haunt him, Walter begins to question everything he thought he understood about his world. Madsen plays Karen, Walter’s brokenhearted mother. In addition to West, Kirk and Madsen, the movie also features performances from Milo Ventimiglia (WildCard), NeveCampbell (WildThings), PeterFacinelli (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1), Jim Gaffigan (ThreeKings), and William H. Macy (Rudderless), and was directed by first time feature filmmaker AnnaMastro.

I recently had the honor of speaking with the absolutely delightful Virginia Madsen about her work on Walter, as well as her memories of making Sideways and A Prairie Home Companion. The Oscar-nominated actress discussed Walter, how a first time filmmaker gets an Oscar-nominee to be in their movie, what she looks for when she is choosing projects, shooting her scenes with Andrew J. West, our shared experience on Sideways, working with the great Robert Altman on A Prairie Home Companion, and the truth about director Paul Thomas Anderson’s contributions to that film.
