Sony and Crackle today released the first Dead Rising trailer for the upcoming original movie, Dead Rising: Endgame. Stars Jesse Metcalfe, Keegan Connor Tracy, Dennis Haysbert, Marie Avgeropoulos, Billy Zane, and Jessica Harmon.
The Dead Rising video game franchise is created by Capcom, and it is hugely successful, having sold over 9.1 million copies worldwide.
The film is based off of the popular video game franchise Dead Rising and begins by dropping us into the zombie-infested quarantined zone of East Mission City where investigative reporter Chase Carter must stop a secret government conspiracy which, though seemingly aimed at ending the country’s zombie epidemic, will also kill millions of innocent civilians.
Jesse Metcalfe returns to Dead Rising: Endgame as Chase Carter, the well-known television journalist who goes back underground to stop the military’s rogue operation and break the ultimate story. Keegan Connor Tracy returns as camera operator and producer, Jordan Blair. Attempting to thwart their plans is Dennis Haysbert reprising his role as General Lyons, a crooked Military Intelligence Officer. Patrick Sabongui returns in a new role, playing a skilled zombie killer and video game aficionado who talks a big and crude game to mask his gentle side.
