Dead Rising movie set to land in March

Dead Rising is coming to your TV sooner than you might have thought: Dead Rising: Watchtower will premiere on Sony‘s streaming TV service Crackle from March 27.

Dead Rising: Watchtower features a solid cast – 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) join Rob Riggle (The Daily Show) as Frank West.

Even though the film’s set to hit Crackle first, don’t think that means you won’t be able to see it in other places. We doubt it’ll get a cinematic release, but we’re promised “other digital services” will follow, as well as an eventual physical release. Interestingly, some outlets are reportedly choosing to show Watchtower as a short, episodic series rather than a one-off film – keep an eye on local guides for details.
