Dead Rising web series being developed by Mortal Kombat: Legacy creator

Producer Tim Carter said he's finalizing a deal for a Dead Rising series and working on a Mighty No. 9 movie.

Producer of the Mortal Kombat: Legacy live-action web series Tim Carter said that he's optioned the rights for Dead Rising from Capcom, and is just waiting to finalize a deal with a "very large studio in Los Angels."

If the deal goes through, Carter's Contradiction Films will produce a live-action web series based on Capcom's zombie game, he told EP Live. He explained that the Dead Rising series will be 90 minutes long all together, and that it will have a linear story, unlike the first season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy.

Carter also said that he's working on a live-action adaptation of Mighty No. 9. Speaking with Polygon, Mega Man and Mighty No. 9 creator Keiji Inafune later clarified that this is not a done deal yet, and that he is just in talks with Contradiction Films.

This is not the first time Capcom has produced live-action content based on the Dead Rising games. In 2010, it made a short live-action film called Zombrex: Dead Rising Sun, which was later released episodically on Xbox Live.

We recently reported that Dead Rising 3 has shipped 1 million copies.

The fact I didn't watch Mortal Kombat: Legacy when they released is because they were like 5-10mins long. Couldn't stand how short they were so I watched them all side by side.

It being the same Producers means nothing towards quality; but the Mortal Kombat series was so good it spawned a movie that's being developed

Not interested, but Dead Rising 3 is the last game I beat, which was a few days ago, and I'm still kind of playing it. It's a great game. I'm excited for what a sequel may bring. Wait, I take that back, Outlast was the last game I beat, yesterday.

@Boddicker  I bought the high end model that goes 8 past the decimal so mine read 0000.00000001 but now I think I dropped it last week and haven't had it calibrated so it could be off by 0000.00000001

@playstationzone  How can you compare a video game series to a comic series? yes Walking Dead was a comic long before the show, if you were educated enough about the subject you would know that.
