Digital Playground founder Joone, best known for helming the highly successful "Pirates" franchise, first spotted the 19-year-old Valentine in January.
“She radiates sexuality and playfulness, but speaking with her reveals a great intelligence for someone so young," he said. "Rio Valentine encompasses everything Digital Playground stands for.”
Valentine used to work under the name Morgan Dayne as an exclusive performer for Cezar Capone Productions.
Digital Playground's CEO Samantha Lewis said that as soon as they signed Valentine, her team immediately began shooting content with her in anticipation of her debut release.
“As word of Rio Valentine's signing spreads, we are receiving an incredible demand for her movies," Lewis said. "Rio's debut is coming soon and will contain all the quality, beauty, and sexiness common of every Digital Playground movie.”
Valentine, who maintains a MySpace page, said that signing with Digital Playground is one of the proudest moments of her life.
"I'm eager to see what the future holds," she said. "I can't wait to make a business out of being a sex symbol.”
