The Dead Rising movie gets a release date

Dead Rising Frank West zombies 1

Leprechaun: Origins director Zach Lipovsky's Dead Rising: Watchtower movie arrives in just over 2 months.

Sony's Crackle streaming service will air Dead Rising: Watchtower on 27 March 2015, but it will also be on other streaming sites, DVD, and TV too.

Dead Rising: Watchtower is the movie based on the Dead Rising video game series from Capcom, and will take place during a zombie apocalypse, just like the games.

The movie revolves around four survivors looking to find the cause of the outbreak, following a government-created vaccine's failure to end it.

The starring cast is made up of Jesse Metcalfe (John Tucker Must Die), Megahn Ory (Once Upon a Time, Virginia Madsen (The Number 23), and Dennis Haysbert (24). Rob Riggle (The Hangover) will appear as Frank West, the protagonist from the first Dead Rising game.

Leprechaun: Origins director Zach Lipovsky directed the movie, with Legendary Entertainment's TV and Digital Media department producing it.
