Crackle Streaming Service Picks Up 'Dead Rising' Movie

In an attempt to counter the ever growing popularity of Netflix, up-and-coming streaming service Crackle is planning to adapt the hit zombie-centered video game 'Dead Rising' into a feature length film, according to MTV. The movie will be available exclusively on Crackle, and will be distributed episodically after the film's release.

Streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon are now experiencing much success with their original programs, including the 'Orange is the New Black' and 'Arrested Development', so Crackle's own original endeavors do not come as a surprise. However, Crackle will be the first to tackle video game to film adaptations, and has selected quite a popular vehicle to use.

"'Dead Rising' has a built-in fan base and rich characters and plot lines that are ideal for digital storytelling and on target for Legendary's brand," said Tom Lesinski, chief of Legendary Digital. "Crackle and Content are adept at distributing cutting-edge digital content and we look forward to delivering a highly engaging and cool series for a global audience."

'Transformers' producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura is slated to executive produce the film.
