Anthony E. Zuiker, the creator of the “CSI” franchise, his production company Dare to Pass and Yahoo! Inc today announced that casting and production will officially begin on Cybergeddon, a motion picture event which will bring to life the growing threat of cybercrime.
Written by Miles Chapman (The Tomb, to star Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger), Cybergeddon executive producers include Anthony E. Zuiker, Matthew Weinberg, President, Dare to Pass and Bill ODowd, CEO, Dolphin Digital Studios. True to his storytelling form, Zuiker has engaged Norton by Symantec to leverage its technical credibility and security insights to help inform and guide the narrative.
“‘Cybergeddon’ is the evolution of the crime genre,” says creator Anthony E. Zuiker. “Through an invaluable partnership with Norton and embracing the forward-thinking vision of Dolphin Entertainment, ‘Cybergeddon’ will be a motion picture event released through Yahoo!’s global online distribution. Instead of opening ‘wide’ at 5000 screens, ‘Cybergeddon’ has the potential to premiere on 50 million online screens all over the world at the same time. This global distribution model is the future of storytelling with unprecedented scale.”
Cybergeddon will be launching globally, first on Yahoo! this fall, as a series of installments to roll out sequentially.
