Capcom's zombie-packed Dead Rising videogame series is to be turned into a film...

Capcom's Dead Rising series of videogames are the latest to be making the jump across to the movies. Well, sort of.

Legendary Pictures is to finance and produce a film based on Dead Rising, for which Tim Carter has been hired to write the script and produce the film (along with Tomas Harlan). Lorenzo di Bonaventura will be executive producing. No director has thus far been announced.

However, the target for the film isn't the big screen, rather Sony's online video service, Crackle. Once the film has debuted on Crackle, it's then expected to be available on disc and on demand.

Expect lots of zombies anyway, even if they won't be found, in this case, at your local multiplex.
