It looks like the reports that Lorenzo di Bonaventura being the producer of the upcoming movie adaptation of Dead Rising is now false. The Wrap is reporting that the official director of the movie will be Zach Lipovsky. Lipovsky was a former contestant on the show On The Lot, which was a reality show where directors made short films each week. Lipovsky didn’t win the show, but went to to direct Leprechaun Origins and Tasmanian Devils.
Dead Rising will be released on Sony’s Crackle service and will also be released at a later date on DVD and Video On Demand. No official release date has been announced.
