“Dead Rising: Watchtower” Premieres On Crackle In March

•• Sony Pictures Television’ streaming Crackle service has announced the air date for its movie based on Capcom’s Dead Rising series. Dead Rising: Watchtower will premiere on March 27th.

The film stars Rob Riggle (The Daily Show) as Frank West, alongside Jesse Metcalfe (John Tucker Must Die, Dallas), Meghan Ory (Once Upon a Time, Vampire High), Virginia Madsen (Sideways, The Number 23), and Dennis Haysbert (24, Wreck It Ralph). The film is written by Tim Carter (Sleeping Dogs).

While the movie will premiere first on Crackle, it will eventually arrive in physical format and via other digital services. Some of the video on demand distribution channels will be delivering Dead Rising: Watchtower as an episodic series instead of a feature-length film. An official plot summary for the film was also released:

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.”
