Rhode Island Filmmaker Chad A. Verdi Attaches Oscar Nominated Actor Eric Roberts ("The Dark Knight," "The Expendables") to His Next Horror Film, "Self Storage"Horror Legend Michael Berryman ("The Hills Have Eyes," "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," "Star Trek") and Actor Jonathan Silverman ("Weekend at Bernie's," "Inkubus") Round Out the Cast (June 13, 2012)
EAST GREENWICH, RI -- (Marketwire) -- 06/13/12 -- The Woodhaven Production Company is pleased to announce the signing of Oscar Nominated actor Eric Roberts ("The Dark Knight," "The Expendables") and horror legend Michael Berryman ("The Hills Have Eyes," "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest") along with Jonathan Silverman ("Weekend at Bernie's," "Inkubus").
Filming begins in mid-July on location in East Greenwich, RI.
"Self Storage," written by Rhode Island actor/writer/producer 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 is set to play the role of Walter, a former black operative with an evil secret. Walter, along with his faithful brother at arms, Trevor (Michael Berryman), have 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.
Verdi stated, "This film is going to be something very special. It started with a great script and now with this cast, the sky is the limit." Verdi is planning for a March 2013 release. Self Storage is being produced by Verdi, Gino Pereira and Tom DeNucci. DeNucci will direct. Michelle Verdi will head music and soundtrack. Woodhaven added Executive-Producers Danielle Corsa, David and Sherry Lussier, David Gere, Carl Dupre and Jonathan Silverman to the project.
Verdi stated "We're excited to be bringing back special effects wiz Rob Fitz, who worked with us in the past on Inkubus and Infected, along with Nick Delmenico as our line producer."
Actors, Tom Paolino, Billy Vigeant, Sera Verdi and Tanja Lynch round out the cast, along with new additions Jarod Gray (unit production manager), Jonathan Del Ponte (production designer), and Phil "Skippy" Adams (special effects), on board to crew the project.
Self Storage is Woodhaven's third horror film to be produced in the last 20 months. Woodhaven released "Inkubus," a slasher flick starring horror icon Robert Englund (the original Freddy Krueger), in theaters last Halloween to sell-out crowds. DVDs hit stores nationwide February 21st. The film has now sold more than 100 thousand units through outlets like Wal-Mart, RedBox, and Amazon and is currently on VOD.
Woodhaven's next film Infected will hit theaters this October. "Infected," a horror/zombie thriller set in the woods of New England, centers around Terry, an absentee father (Michael Madsen), and his son Andrew (Tom DeNucci -- "Inkubus," "Loosies") who must fight for survival when their small, close-knit hunting group becomes infected with a virus that originated from a rabid deer they killed and consumed. This infection causes the crew, including Doctor Denehey (William Forsythe), to become homicidal and violent and gives them an insatiable, cannibalistic thirst for humans. In this modern day Night of The Living Dead, the father and son duo are forced to relinquish old friendships as their former hunting buddies become... Infected.
The Woodhaven Production Company, a subsidiary of Verdi Productions, is a fully funded film production company, covering all aspects of filmmaking from conception of script through postproduction.
