Breaking Movie News: RI Filmmaker Chad A. Verdi Taps Writer/Director Tom DeNucci to Direct next Horror Film: Army of the Damned

EAST GREENWICH, RI - February 27, 2013 ( Newswire) Verdi Productions and The Woodhaven Production Company announce that RI filmmaker Chad A. Verdi attaches writer/director Tom DeNucci to direct his next horror film Army of the Damned. Filming will begin in April with a star studded cast to be announced soon. David Gere and Seth Rosenblit will join Mr. Verdi and Gino Pereira as producers on the project. The film will be photographed by cinematographer Sam Eilertsen.

Verdi will produce four films in the state of RI and employ hundreds of people over the next 18 months: "This film will mark the start of one of the most aggressive production schedules ever attempted by a production company. It was not our intention to try to film all four feature films in 18 months, we had a five year plan when we started out. But due to actor and director commitments, along with the financing and distribution schedule, we decided to pull the trigger and run with it."
"We are in a great position because we are making films knowing that they're already sold and have distribution," Verdi stated. "Of the four films, two will be horror, one a comedy and the final will be my passion project PAZ; the inspirational true story of World Champion Boxer Vinny Paz. After a near fatal car crash left Vinny not knowing if he'd ever walk again never mind box, he went on to make one of the most incredible comebacks in sports history. To secure success and to meet our timetable, I will be using four different directors and over 100 actors on these four films."
Army of the Damned tells the story of a hit reality TV show film crew following a group of local cops in a sleepy town. Things go horribly wrong when they respond to a call that brings a whole new meaning to the term "domestic disturbance." Faced with life and death situations, these officers are forced to throw the rule book out in order to stay alive. The lawmen do all they can to serve, protect and avoid joining the ARMY of the DAMNED.
Verdi's latest films, Infected and Self Storage are being released through Screen Media and will each reach over 100 million homes through Universal's VOD platform starting April 10th with Infected and Self-Storage on June 2nd. The release dates on both films were moved up due to high demand. Newswire Follow Army of the Damned on Facebook at
