“Dead Rising” Movie Casts Rob Riggle as Frank West

Comedian Rob Riggle will be starring as Frank West in Dead Rising: Watchtower. Riggle is an actor and retired U.S. Marine who has appeared in 21 Jump Street and Let’s Be Cops, so he knows a thing or two about crazies. Riggle will play a photojournalist who experiences zombie outbreaks. He will work alongside Keegan Connor Tracy from Once Upon a Time, who will play Jordan, a “straight-laced journalist”. Harley Morenstein and Aleks Paunovic will play bike gang members.

Legendary Digital Media describes Dead Rising: Watchtower as follows:

“Dead Rising: Watchtower takes place during a large-scale zombie outbreak. When a mandatory government vaccine fails to stop the infection from spreading, the four leads must evade infection while also pursuing the root of the epidemic, with all signs pointing to a government conspiracy. Politics, public paranoia, and media coverage play an important role in the story’s narrative.”

From the sounds of it, the movie will debut on Crackle, a service for PlayStation and Xbox platforms as well as PC and mobile devices.
