Based on the game, Dead Rising takes place during a large-scale zombie outbreak. When a mandatory government vaccine fails to stop the infection from spreading, the four leads must evade infection while also pursuing the root of the epidemic, with all signs pointing to a government conspiracy.

- The project is still in early stages, as a script has yet to be written. However, knowing how fast these digital projects usually work, I'm sure it will move forward before the end of the year. (6/20/14)
- One of the producers was quoted saying: "Dead Rising has a built-in fan base and rich characters and plotlines that are ideal for digital storytelling and on target for Legendary’s brand. 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."
- Apparently the streaming service/site Crackle will be first to release the film then sometime after it will get the standard on-demand and DVD release.
- The film will reportedly be released in both full length and episodic formats, much like they did with the recent Mortal Kombat adaptation.
- Produced by Contradiction Films (Mortal Kombat: Legacy).
- Based on the hit video game with the same name.
