Jesse Metcalfe returns as journalist Chase Carter in this sequel to last year’s Dead Rising: Watchtower; which is based on the best selling video game franchise ‘Dead Rising’. If there isn’t a joke about him chasing a story I’ll be very disappointed.
The official plot synopsis is as follows:
DEAD RISING: ENDGAME drops us into the zombie-infested quarantined zone of East Mission City where investigative reporter Chase Carter (Jesse Metcalfe) must stop a secret government conspiracy which, though seemingly aimed at ending the country’s zombie epidemic, will also kill millions of innocent civilians.
I think we all know this movie isn’t going to set the world on fire – the zombies… look like zombies and it has a decent cast of mostly TV actors – but it looks like a fun B-grade zombie movie with plenty of shout-outs to the video games it’s based on – like the over-the-top weapon crafting. What do you think?
Dead Rising: Endgame will be available for streaming from VOD service Crackle on 20 June. Directed by Pat Williams (Continuum) from a script by Tim Carter (Dead Rising: Watchtower) and Michael Ferris (Terminator Salvation), it stars Jesse Metcalfe, Marie Avgeropoulos, Billy Zane, Dennis Haysbert, Jessica Harmon, Keegan Connor Tracy, Ian Tracey, Victor Webster, Camille Sullivan and Patrick Sabongui.
