Olivier Martinez (Unfaithful) and Missy Peregrym ("Rookie Blue") to Star in First-Of- Its- Kind Digital Motion Picture Event

Cybergeddon Directed by Diego Velasco (The Zero Hour)

LOS ANGELES - May 9, 2012 - Anthony E. Zuiker, the visionary creator of the CSI franchise and his production company Dare to Pass, along with Dolphin Digital Media, today revealed the director and full cast for Cybergeddon, a groundbreaking digital event about the growing threat of cybercrime, identity theft and vulnerabilities in our highly connected lives to be released exclusively on Yahoo!. Cybergeddon, now in full production in Toronto, Canada, will star Olivier Martinez (Unfaithful) as the elusive cybercriminal Gustove Dobreff, and Missy Peregrym ("Rookie Blue") as FBI agent Chloe Jocelyn. Manny Montana ("Breakout Kings") and Kick Gurry (Speed Racer) are also attached and will play FBI Agent Frank Parker and former cybercriminal turned good-guy Chase 'Rabbit' Rosen respectively. Award-winning director Diego Velasco (The Zero Hour) has also signed on to bring the story to life.

The story follows agent Chloe Jocelyn as she investigates a slew of seemingly unrelated cyber-attacks with fellow agent Frank Parker and incarcerated master hacker Chase 'Rabbit' Rosen. Chloe and her team must crack the worldwide cybercrime ring led by Gustove Dobreff before it is too late. In a world where everyone is connected, everyone is at risk. Norton by Symantec consulted directly with the projects' creators to lend credibility and technical insights that helped inform the narrative and led to the creation of a cybersecurity character in the film.

"I could not be happier with the talent level for Cybergeddon. Missy, Manny, and Kick are such gifted actors and a dream trio for us, and Diego is a dynamic shooter and visceral storyteller. Adding Olivier Martinez to the mix puts this movie over the top," says creator Anthony E. Zuiker.

Cybergeddon, the 2.0 version of crime fiction, will premiere globally on Yahoo! in September 2012 as a series of sequential installments that will engage Yahoo!'s worldwide audience of more than 700 million unique visitors through an immersive storytelling, social media and gaming experience.

Written by Miles Chapman (The Tomb), Cybergeddon executive producers include Anthony E. Zuiker, Matthew Weinberg, (President, Dare to Pass) and Bill O'Dowd, (CEO, Dolphin Digital Studios). Progressive financing and distribution company Dolphin Digital Media backed the project in a deal brokered by Creative Artists Agency (CAA).

"Dolphin's commitment to bringing best in class original scripted programming to the Internet starts with the combination of the best talent and the budget to execute their vision," said Bill O'Dowd, CEO, Dolphin Digital Studios. "Anthony E. Zuiker is a world class storyteller and it is a testament to his vision for Cybergeddon that we are able to attract Olivier, Missy, and such an amazing cast."
