The landscape of video game movie adaptations may very well be changing with Neil Druckman’s upcoming THE LAST OF US flick, but DEAD RISING looks set to follow in the same mould as TOMB RAIDER, DOOM and RESIDENT EVIL.

The Wrap has reported that LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS director Zach Lipovsky is on board to helm the film based on Capcom’s hit survival horror franchise, for Legendary Pictures, Sony’s Crackle and executive producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. The release will mark the first via Legendary Digital Media.

Crackle will release the film exclusively through Crackle in the US, before a multi-platform release on SVOD, VOD, DVD, and TV. While an international release is expected, no date has yet been confirmed.

Crackle shut down its UK operations earlier this year.
