Oh boy. Surefire testament to quality, right there. As if being a direct-to-internet movie wasn't one already.

So in other words he's doing a low-budget remake of Dawn of the Dead, then. Confused

Eh, if they cast Johnny Knoxville as Frank West, I'll check it out just for lols. Laughing

Yeah that's the problem, Dead Rising (the first game) was a homage to Dawn of the Dead, and adapting Dead Rising into a film is basically a remake of Dawn of the Dead. So I have a feeling this film adaptation may not do so well (except fans of the game).

It'd be faithful to the games.

(Not that the games are awful to play, but they are intentionally bad.)
