RI Producer Chad A. Verdi's Film "Loosies" Is Now Available in Over 40 Million Homes Worldwide"Loosies" Is Now Available Through Video On Demand, iTunes, and the SundanceNow Website, and Will Hit Select Theaters in January 2012 (November 18, 2011)
EAST GREENWICH, RI -- (Marketwire) -- 11/18/11 -- Verdi Productions announced today that its film, "Loosies," is now available through major US cable distributors, as well as iTunes and the SundanceNow website.
"Loosies" tells the story of Bobby (Peter Facinelli, "Twilight"), a NYC pickpocket, who roams the city disguised as a stockbroker. He's handsome and charming, fitting in perfectly with the Wall Street types on the subway and downtown, but with no father and a mother who does not work, Bobby is forced to live a life of crime in order to make ends meet. The original soundtrack is composed and performed by American Idol alumnus Paul McDonald with an original score by Chad Fischer ("Garden State").
Bobby tempts fate with the long arm of the law by lifting the badge of a New York City Detective (Michael Madsen, "Kill Bill," "Infected") much to the annoyance of his viciously manipulative boss Jax (Vincent Gallo, "Brown Bunny"). Bobby becomes the center of a citywide search, and approaches Jax, his mentor, for advice. Jax scolds Bobby for bringing the heat anywhere near him or his business -- the last thing Jax needs is any extra attention on his illicit underground business.
While playing this dangerous game of cat and mouse, Bobby runs into an even bigger challenge... Lucy (Jaimie Alexander, "Thor") a recent one-night stand. It is now three months after their passionate one night affair, and Bobby is confronted with a tough reality. Lucy informs him she is pregnant, and that the child is his. Suddenly two different worlds collide, forcing Bobby to reevaluate a lifetime of missteps.
In a city where he once survived by being invisible, Bobby is now very much exposed and hunted by the police, and he must now choose to continue the illicit lifestyle he once led, or change and take responsibility for his actions.
Producer and CEO of Verdi Productions, Chad A. Verdi, stated, "Having a VOD release that reaches over 50 million homes at the same time Twilight's 'Breaking Dawn' hits theaters is very special."
"Loosies" will be released into select theaters in January 2012.
