Breaking Movie News: Principle Photography of RI Filmmaker Chad A. Verdi's film, Army Of The Damned begins Today with RI director Tom DeNucci at the helm

EAST GREENWICH, RI - April 22, 2013 ( Newswire) Verdi Productions and The Woodhaven Production Company announce that RI filmmaker Chad A. Verdi's film, Army Of The Damned will begin principle photography today with Tom DeNucci directing. The star studded cast includes Tony Todd, Michael Berryman, Joey Fatone, Sully Erna, Tommy Dreamer, Thea Trinidad, Nick Principe, David Chokachi, David Gere, Tom Paolino, Jessica Scott Lussier, Ben Gracia, Billy Vigeant, Tom Gleadow, and Anthony Estrella. Filming will take place in the following RI cities and towns: East Greenwich, Warwick , Cranston , and Providence. Screen Media of NY acquired the worldwide rights of the film.

Army of the Damned tells the story of a hit reality TV crew following a group of local cops in a sleepy town. Things go horribly wrong for the cops, played by Tony Todd ("The Candyman", "Platoon", "The Rock"), Sully Erna ("Godsmack" lead singer and front man), Tommy Dreamer (Pro wrestling legend), David Chokachi ("Baywatch", "Witchblade", "Beyond the Break"), Thea Trinidad (TNA wrestling diva, "Self Storage", "Five Senses of Fear"), Tom Paolino ("Inkubus", "Loosies", "Infected") and the camera crew, played by Joey Fatone ("NSYNC", "My Big Fat Greek Wedding", "Inkubus") and Jackie Moore ("100 Ghost Street, The Return of Richard Speck", "Homeland", "30 Rock") 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. With the help of a reclusive hermit played by Michael Berryman ("One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest", "The Devil's Rejects", "Lords of Salem") and a petty criminal played by Nick Principe ("Laid to Rest"," Laid to Rest 2", "Madison County"), 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 this month.
Verdi will produce four films in the state of RI and employ hundreds of people over the next 18 months. "This film being the first, will start one of the most aggressive production schedules ever attempted by a production company, Verdi stated.
"We are in a great position because we are making films knowing that they're already sold and have distribution," added Verdi. "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, we will be using four different directors and over 100 actors on these four films." Newswire Follow Army of the Damned on Facebook at
