New Dead Rising movie, Dead Rising: Endgame, announces cast


Evidently, Crackle had a hit on its hands last year when it released DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER, their film adaptation of the popular Capcom video game series Dead Rising. This is evidenced by the fact that a sequel, DEAD RISING: ENDGAME, has just been announced.

The new film...

drops 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.

Returning from the first film are Jesse Metcalfe, Dennis Haysbert, Keegan Connor Tracy and Patrick Sabongui. And they'll be joined by a bevy of new (and recognizable) names, including ZANE!

Billy Zane (Zoolander 2) will star as Rand, a handsome, cruel scientist who was hired by the government to find a cure for the raging zombie infection, but is instead conducting horrendous experiments on the infected.


Marie Avgeropoulos (The 100) plays Sandra Lowe, a skilled computer hacker and Chase’s on-and-off girlfriend who joins him in his quest to battle the zombie-infested underground and stop General Lyons’ plan.


Ian Tracey (Bates Motel, Man of Steel) is George Hancock, the courageous whistleblower who compels Chase and his team to enter a zombie-infested city on a rescue mission.


Jessica Harmon (iZombie) plays Jill, a news producer who joins Chase and his intrepid crew to infiltrate a secret laboratory and stop the carnage.


Victor Webster (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce) is Chuck Greene, the reluctant hero and protagonist of the Dead Rising 2 video game.


 Camille Sullivan (The Man in the High Castle) plays Susan Ingot, the CEO of Phenotrans, the manufacturer of Zombrex, the vaccine that keeps the zombie infection at bay.

Got all that? Good. Dead Rising: Endgame is directed by Pat Williams (Continuum) and written by Michael Ferris (Terminator Salvation) and Tim Carter (Dead Rising: Watchtower).  Production is underway right now in Vancouver.
