SANTA MONICA, Calif.- Atom.com announced today that Olivia Munn - Attack of the Show co-host, current Playboy cover girl, and all-around geek goddess -- has signed to star in and executive-produce Star Wars fan films for the digital comedy network.
Munn is joining Atom at San Diego Comic-Con International this weekend to premiere the first of the Star Wars-themed videos she is producing through “Operation Olivia: The Star Wars Challenge,” a new online destination that will launch Saturday, July 25 at http://olivia.atom.com. (Select photos from Munn’s first fan film production are already available on the site.)
“Operation Olivia” will debut with Munn’s appearance at the annual Lucasfilm-Atom.com “Star Wars Fan Movie Awards” ceremony (Friday, July 24 at 8:30pm, Comic-Con Ballroom 20). The next night, she will participate in Atom’s “Star Wars fan movie” panel at Comic-Con (Saturday, July 25 at 8:30pm, Room 7AB), where she will discuss the project in more detail. Operation Olivia information and promotional swag will also be available at Atom’s Comic-Con, Booth 3445, Wednesday evening, July 22 through Sunday, July 26.
“I’m excited to show everyone my exclusive Star Wars fan films; it’s great to get the official seal of approval from Lucasfilm and Atom -- and hopefully the fans,” said Munn. “No, there isn’t any wrestling with a rancor, BUT there might be a suggestive scene with Jar Jar Binks -- no promises though!”
“We couldn’t be happier that Olivia is taking a break from her ongoing conquest of Hollywood to bring her star power and comedic talents to Atom.com and fan filmmaking,” said Scott Roesch, Atom.com general manager. “Trust me, fans are going to want to show up at Comic-Con and hear what she has to say about ’Operation Olivia.’”
Atom.com has long been the source of the Internet’s best and funniest fan films. It partnered with Lucasfilm in 2000 as the studio’s exclusive online partner for fan films, and the resulting “Star Wars Fan Movie Challenge” program, judged by George Lucas and Atom and Lucasfilm staff, has generated tens of millions of online views for hundreds of titles, including Star Wars Gangsta Rap, Pink Five, and Padme. Atom has also distributed many of the films on television through Comedy Central, Spike TV, and Sci-Fi Channel.
