Dead Rising is being made into a movie for Sony's Crackle video service

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

Capcom's Dead Rising franchise is being adapted into a feature-length film that will stream first on Sony's Crackle video service in the U.S., Variety reports.

Dead Rising will be directed by Tim Carter and produced by Tomas Harlan, the duo that co-owns Contradiction Films, which previously worked on the Mortal Kombat: Legacy web series. It's the first project for Legendary Pictures' digital division, Legendary Digital Media. Transformers and G.I. Joe movie producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura will executive produce the digital feature.

After it's run on Crackle, the Dead Rising movie will be available on-demand and on physical media. Content Media Corporation, which distributed Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn and will distribute Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist, also based on a Capcom property, will handle the Dead Rising movie internationally.

Crackle apps are available for PlayStation and Xbox consoles, as well as mobile devices, smart TVs and media players like Roku, Apple TV and Chromecast.
