Sony’s Crackle online network is coming back for more undead action.
Crackle and Legendary Digital Media have begun production in Vancouver on “Dead Rising: Endgame,” the sequel to last year’s original feature film on the streaming-video service, “Dead Rising: Watchtower.” The second installment in the film series, announced at Crackle’s upfront last year, is scheduled to debut on this summer.
“Dead Rising: Endgame” is set in the zombie-infested quarantined zone of East Mission City. Investigative reporter Chase Carter (played by Jesse Metcalfe) must stop a secret government conspiracy which, though seemingly aimed at ending the country’s zombie epidemic, will also kill millions of innocent civilians.
The “Dead Rising” films are based on Capcom’s popular video-game franchise, which has sold more than 9 million copies worldwide.
