Cybergeddon unfolds the story of a digitally connected world facing the ultimate doom from the computer virus that is hell-bent to destroy all information networks and bring humanity to a crushing end.
Released Tuesday, Sept. 25, Cybergeddon is a motion picture event which brings to life the growing threat of cybercrime.
It’s a joint production of Anthony E. Zuiker – the creator of the CSI franchise and his production company Dare to Pass – and Yahoo!.
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.
“‘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,” said creator Anthony E. Zuiker while announcing about the project in March.
“It will engage Yahoo!’s worldwide audience through an immersive storytelling, social media and gaming experience,” Zuiker stated.
True to his storytelling form, Zuiker has engaged Norton by Symantec to leverage its security insights to help inform and guide the narrative.
Progressive financier and distribution company Dolphin Digital Media backed the project in a deal brokered and packaged by Creative Artists Agency (CAA).
