We've come full circle. Capcom's zombie horror series Dead Rising is based on George Romero's zombie films. Now, the game series is making the leap to live action.
The movie is set in an alternative reality in which areas affected by outbreaks are strictly quarantined, and those living in the area are cordoned off from the rest of the country. Two brothers George and Shin, hatch a plan to escape.
Starring actors Hiroki Yoshida and Hiroshi Yazaki, Shibyou Osen DEAD RISING is a live-action movie co-written and directed by Dead Rising designer and Mega-Man creator Keiji Inafune. The gory, blood-driven trailer features first-person-shooter style action, exploding heads and inventive wheelchair modification.
The movie will be released this year on Xbox LIVE and via the official site. Yeah.
