Breaking Movie News: Filmmakers Chad A. Verdi and Gino Pereira Tap Jonathan Silverman and Three time Emmy winner Jennifer Finnigan to act/direct and co-produce their next comedy film, A Bet's A Bet

EAST GREENWICH, RI - March 25, 2013 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Verdi Productions announces that filmmakers Chad A. Verdi and Gino Pereira attach Jonathan Silverman and three time Emmy winner Jennifer Finnigan to direct their next feature film, A Bet's A Bet. A star studded cast will be announced soon with filming to commence in Rhode Island in the month of June.

A Bet's A Bet was written by Mark Mussina and Steven Sessions and tells the story of Vince, New England's most successful divorce attorney.To Vince, life is one big competition, and losing is unacceptable. This also applies in his dating life with his �love 'em and leave 'em� approach. Then Vince meets Jane, who is beautiful, successful and also extremely driven. Together they enter into a series of entertaining wagers with each other where the winner gets to decide the fate of the loser. After all, "A Bet's a Bet!"
Verdi and Pereira will produce four films in the state of RI and employ hundreds of people over the next 18 months: "This film will mark the second film of four on one of the most aggressive production schedules ever attempted by a production company. It's not often that a film has co-directors, but after numerous face to face meetings and months of discussions, Mr. Pereira and I both felt this was best for the project. Jonathan and Jennifer bring years of experience in film and so much passion to this project. Jonathan has acted in two of my prior films, while coming on board as an executive producer in my latest film, Self-Storage. He also just directed National Lampoons most resent comedy, Another Dirty Movie that is due out this August. Jennifer is currently starring in David E Kelley's new TNT drama Monday Mornings. Both Silverman and Finnigan are dear friends and will have supporting roles in the film and it's going to be great working with them."
"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, we will be using four different directors and over 100 actors on these four films."
Verdi and Pereira have added, Mark Mussina, Michael Mussina, Pete Goldfinger, David Gere, Seth Rosenblit, Adam Alexander, Larry Allison Jr., Daniel Klingerman and Tom DeNucci as executive producers with Michelle Verdi as the music supervisor

Breaking Movie News: RI Filmmaker Chad A. Verdi Releases The Official Trailer Of His Latest Film, Self-Storage Film to Receive A Worldwide VOD Release Through Universal.

EAST GREENWICH, RI - March 4, 2013 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Verdi Productions and The Woodhaven Production Company announce the official trailer and worldwide release of their latest film, Self-Storage, through Universal. The film will each reach over 100 million homes through Universal's VOD platform starting June 10th.


Chad A. Verdi, the producer and CEO stated, “This is one of the best films I have been involved with and the trailer reflects this. Verdi added, It's a great feeling to be able to reach over 100 million homes with a national VOD release like this film will receive. I am very proud of my Director Tom DeNucci for his hard work and dedication to this project."
Self Storage, written by Rhode Island actor/writer/director Tom DeNucci (Inkubus, Loosies, Infected), tells the story of Jake, the night watchman working at a highly secured self storage facility. His pals are home from college and looking to party. Jake (Tom DeNucci) invites them to his work for a fiesta of his own. Innocent mischief turns a naughty night of sex, drugs and rock and roll into an evening of pure terror. Barbed wire fences are meant to keep people OUT. But these fences keep people IN. Eric Roberts plays the role of Walter, a former black operative with an evil secret. Walter, along with his faithful brother in arms, Trevor (Michael Berryman), has some unfinished business with a seedy underworld grifter, Jonah (Jonathan Silverman). Black market business mixes with pleasure when Jake and his pals stumble upon this heinous covert operation.

Then Verdi, through his companies The Woodhaven Production company/Verdi Productions will produce the films. Upon the delivery of each film, SMF will acquire all worldwide rights. Verdi stated, “It's a win- win for both companies. We are making films knowing they are already sold and have distribution while SMF receives a constant flow of films for their pipeline." Verdi Added, “our goal is to produce all four films in RI.
Woodhaven just green lit its next project 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.
