With Michael Berryman, Sully Erna and Nick Principe already in the cast of their upcoming film, you’d think producer Chad Verdi and Woodhaven Productions would rest on their laurels. But that’s far from the case as the team has enlisted Tony Todd for their Army of the Damned.
“Tony Todd is a great actor and a horror legend,” Verdi said. “He was the last piece of the puzzle that I felt this film needed to be the blockbuster I know it will be.”
Todd will join Berryman, Erna and Principe along with entertainer Joey Fatone and former professional wrestlers Tommy Dreamer and Thea Trinidad as well as David Chokachi, Jackie Moore and Tom Paolino in the Army of the Damned cast. The film will be directed by Tom DeNucci and photographed by cinematographer Sam Eilertsen. You can keep updated on the project by ‘liking’ Army of the Damned on Facebook.
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 horrible wrong for the cops, played by Tony Todd (Candyman, Platoon, The Rock), Sully Erna (Godsmack 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) and Tom Paolino (Inkubus, Infected), and the camera crew, played by Joey Fatone (N*SYNC, My Big Fat Greek Wedding) 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) and a petty criminal played by Nick Principe (Laid to Rest, Chromeskull: 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 horror 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 on April 10th with Infected, followed by Self-Storage on June 2nd.
