Soska Sisters Will Cameo in Dead Rising: Watchtower


Soska SistersTidbits of info about Crackle’s live-action adaptation of the Capcom video game Dead Rising have been coming at us hot and heavy this week, and we’ve plucked out another juicy little morsel for you tonight. Read on!

In an interview with Crave Online, “Twisted Twins” Jen and Sylvia Soska (See No Evil 2, American Mary) let it spill that they’ll be popping up for a cameo in the Zach Lipovsky-directed adaptation, appearing in the film as zombies. They also commented a bit about the tone of the movie, and it all sounds like music to our ears.

We just got out of Zach Lipovsky’s Dead Rising, and we’re covered in bruises from zombie-ing,” said Sylvia Soska. “If you played the game, you are going to go nuts over the movie. They are going so over-the-top in staying with the gore and camerawork and everything. It’s so much fun.”

The cast of Dead Rising: Watchtower includes Jesse Metcalfe (“Desperate Housewives,” “Dallas”), Meghan Ory (“Once Upon a Time”), Virginia Madsen (Candyman, Sideways), Dennis Haysbert (Men, Women & Children), comic actor Rob Riggle (22 Jump Street, Let’s Be Cops), Harley Morenstein (“Epic Meal Time”), Keegan Connor Tracey (“Bates Motel,” “Once Upon A Time”), and Aleks Paunovic (This Means War).

Sony’s Crackle will give the 90-minute feature, directed by Leprechaun: Origins’  Zach Lipovsky, an exclusive digital release in the U.S. before the film receives a multi-platform release on SVOD, VOD, DVD, and TV.

The script was written by Tim Carter, who also produces alongside Tomas Harlan under their Contradiction Films banner (the same company that produced Mortal Kombat: Legacy). Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers, G.I. Joe) is the executive producer.

As in the video game, Dead Rising: Watchtower is set during a zombie apocalypse. When a mandatory government vaccine fails, a group of survivors must evade infection while hunting down the root of the epidemic, which leads back to a government conspiracy.
