If you're a fan of Capcom's Dead Rising games, then you will be pleased to know that the franchise is being adapted into a movie by Legendary Pictures. Titled Dead Rising: Watchtower, the film will be streamed on Sony's streaming service Crackle.

Comedian Rob Riggle will play Frank West, who was the first game's main protagonist. While you may remember Riggle from movies like 21 Jump Street, it may come as a surprise that he was a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Marine Corps Reserve and has served in Liberia, Kosovoa, and Afghanistan. He has also filmed segments for The Daily Show in Iraq so Riggle has covered wars and definitely knows how to handle a gun. The movie takes place during a zombie outbreak, with the four main lead characters looking to find the cause of the outbreak.
