Romero files lawsuit against Capcom over Dead Rising

A movie producer with the rights to George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead movie sued Dead Rising developer Capcom on Monday after talks between the two parties failed.

As we reported earlier this month, Capcom sought an injunction against the MKR Group to prevent it suing the games company. But it seems it didn’t get what it wanted.

“Both works are dark comedies,” the complaint filed by MKR reads. “Both works provided thoughtful social commentary on the ‘mall culture’ zeitgeist, in addition to serving up a sizable portion of sensationalistic violence.”

There’s more than a healthy link between Dawn of the Dead and Dead Rising, but the crux of the lawsuit appears to be that they both feature zombies in a mall. (link)
