The film's female cast will include Sonya Salomma and Enuka Okuma and newcomer Ona Grauer as Alicia, the film's lead character.

The movie will be produced by Shawn Williamson under the Brightlight Pictures banner and executive produced by Mindfire Entertainment, which has produced the award winning Free Enterprise and The Specials, and Daniel Kletzky, a producer on Resident Evil and Final Fantasy.

House of the Dead is currently slated to hit theaters in spring 2003. The latest installment in the game series, House of the Dead 3, is set for release this fall exclusively for Microsoft's Xbox.
