Dead Rising movie reportedly appoints Zach Lipovsky as director

23 August 2014 3:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Dead Rising's movie adaptation will reportedly be directed by Zach Lipovsky.

The special effects guru will helm the project for Legendary Digital Media, according to The Wrap.

Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura will executive produce the Dead Rising film, with Mortal Kombat: Legacy scribe Tim Carter providing the screenplay.

Lipovsky began his career in special effects, appearing as a contestant on Steven Spielberg and Mark Burnett's reality TV show On the Lot. He went on to direct horror reboot Leprechaun: Origins for Lionsgate and WWE Studios.

The latest instalment in Capcom's zombie series, Dead Rising 3, was released as an Xbox One launch title. It was confirmed for PC in June.

The movie adaptation will be aired on Sony's video on demand service Crackle.

'Dead Rising' Adaptation Nabs 'Leprechaun: Origins' Director

21 August 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Dead Rising, the film being developed for all forms of digital distribution that's based on the video game franchise that has sold over 6.5 million games, has landed a director. The man to helm the ambitious, digital project will be Zach Lipovsky, who rose to fame on the reality TV filmmaking competition produced by Steven Spielberg and Mark Burnett, "On The Lot."

A visual effects veteran, Lipovsky recently completed the horror reboot Leprechaun: Origins for WWE Studios. This live-action take on Dead Rising is being written by Tim Carter, who will also serve as a producer for the project- just as he did for Machinima's "Mortal Kombat: Legacy" web series.

Dead Rising, about a zombie apocalypse that not even a mandatory government vaccine could prevent, will tell a tale of survival. The 90-minute film will be available in all kinds of formats, across several platforms. From episodic form, to a full-length film, »

Dead Rising Movie Adaptation Has a Director

21 August 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A couple of months ago Legendary Pictures announced that they would be developing a digital feature adaptation of the hit zombie video game Dead Rising. The film is being produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers), and they've hired Leprechaun: Origins director Zach Lipovsky to helm the project.

The story takes place during a massive 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."

It's basically every zombie movie rolled into one. I love zombie movies, so more zombie stuff doesn't bother me. I've also enjoyed playing this game, and it could make for a great and entertaining flick if it's done right. 

Mortal Kombat: Legacy producer Tim Carter wrote the script for the 90 minute movie, and it will premiere exclusively on Crackle in »

Dead Rising Movie Will Be Helmed By Zach Lipovsky

21 August 2014 6:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A film adaptation of Capcom’s popular survival horror video game franchise Dead Rising is shambling steadily forward, with news that Legendary Pictures’ new Legendary Digital Media division has set Leprechaun: Origins director Zach Lipovsky to helm the film, which will exclusively debut on Crackle before hitting Blu-Ray, TV and VOD services.

It’s exciting to see Lipovsky score a gig like this – the only reality TV show I ever invested time in was On the Lot, a short-lived filmmaking competition on which he placed fifth. Back then, I recall Lipovsky delivering some immensely enjoyable short films (see if you can find “Danger Zone” or “Die Hardly Working” online). Since that show, he has found success in horror – prior to Leprechaun: Origins, Lipovsky directed Tasmanian Devils and co-produced Afflicted.

Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing the Dead Rising adaptation, which boasts a script by Mortal Kombat: Legacy producer Tim Carter. »

Lipovsky To Helm "Dead Rising" Film

20 August 2014 6:50 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Leprechaun: Origins" and "Tasmanian Devils" helmer Zach Lipovsky is set to direct the upcoming film based on Capcom's popular "Dead Rising" video game series for Legendary Pictures' new Legendary Digital Media label.

Tim Carter ("Mortal Kombat: Legacy") wrote the script for the 90-minute digital feature which will premiere exclusively on Crackle in the Us and will be distributed internationally in both episodic and feature format.

The game series followed a freelance photojournalist during a zombie outbreak. Trapped in a shopping mall, he can't get out but he has the entire mall at his disposal to craft weapons to fight off the flesh-hungry mob.

Upon completing its run on Crackle, "Dead Rising" will be released on Svod, DVD, VOD and TV. Lorenzo di Bonaventura will produce.

Kevin Tancharoen Will Helm The Guns Of Christmas Past

15 July 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Tired of watching Elf, The Polar Express and It’s A Wonderful Life back-to-back every Christmas Eve? Voltage Pictures may have just the thing for you, with news that the studio is moving forward with a ludicrous action flick titled The Guns of Christmas Past and has brought Kevin Tancharoen on board to direct.

The movie, very loosely inspired by Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, centers on a retired hitman who finds himself in Chicago on Christmas Eve to avenge the death of a friend. That night, the hitman realizes that he must fight three unlikely adversaries from his past, present and future if he’s to avenge his friend’s death and find out who he really is in the process. Andrew Hilton, who also wrote upcoming flicks Bullet Run and The Lost Patrol, penned the script.

Honestly, that premise sounds just nutty enough to work. Typical Christmas movies »

Kevin Tancharoen to Direct The Guns Of Christmas Past; Loosely Based on A Christmas Carol

14 July 2014 7:01 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Kevin Tancharoen (Mortal Kombat: Legacy) has signed on to direct The Guns of Christmas Past.  The script by Andrew Hilton is very loosely based on the classic Charles Dickens tale A Christmas Carol.  The story centers on a retired hitman in Chicago on Christmas Eve.  The hitman must fight three unlikely adversaries from his past, present, and future while on a mission to avenge the death of a friend.  It sounds like a fun premise---after seeing his work in the Mortal Kombat realm, I am happy to see Tancharoen get a chance with a feature budget to make an action movie with a goofy story. Deadline reports Zev Foreman and Nicolas Chartier will produce The Guns of Christmas Past for Voltage Pictures.

Just shy of a year after the third installment of Capcom's hit video game franchise Dead Rising hit stores, we've just gotten word that the property is getting a feature film adaptation, which should put a huge smile on the faces of all who dig some good old fashioned undead mayhem.

Dead Rising Video Game Getting Film Treatment on Sony's Crackle

20 June 2014 8:43 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The popular video game series Dead Rising is getting the feature film treatment, but not in the way you might expect. Instead of taking the challenge of turning this open world zombie video game to the big screen, the film will actually be a digital feature film that will stream on Sony's online entertainment website Crackle. Transformers franchise producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura will executive produce the film with a script from Tim Carter adapting the game set in a massive zombie outbreak. The film will follow four people avoiding the infection and pursuing the root of the epidemic, leading to a government conspiracy. As we always say, video game movies are tricky, but maybe there will be less pressure by crafting this a digital feature, especially with Contradiction Films behind the project. That's the company behind the digital series "Mortal Kombat: Legacy," which has been pretty solid. In addition, Content »
