Producer Chad A. Verdi had already assembled a memorable cast for his current project, Army of the Damned, but the man behind Woodhaven Productions refuses to rest on his laurels.
Verdi has now added former WWE Diva Maria Kanellis and the infamous Jasmine St. Claire to the project.
Everyone has a favorite wrestling diva, but it is this writer’s opinion that there has never been a more drop-dead gorgeous creature to enter the squared circle than Maria Kanellis. She is absolutely stunning, and as you can see by the still shot from Army of the Damned below, she’s got no trouble getting into the action of a bloody horror film.
Kanellis and St. Claire are added to a very interesting cast. Verdi stated, “We have a very eclectic group of actors on this project: horror legends, rock and pop stars, TV and wrestling superstars, Playboy Playmates and the list goes on. This is by far my best film.”

From the Press Release
Verdi Productions and The Woodhaven Production Company announce that filmmaker Chad A. Verdi attached Maria Kanellis (WWE superstar, “Celebrity Apprentice,” Playboy) and Jasmine St. Claire (Swamp Zombies!!!, Dorm Daze 2, Coalition) to his current film Army of the Damned. They will be joining actors 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, and Anthony Estrella.
David Gere and Seth Rosenblit are joining Mr. Verdi and Gino Pereira as producers on the project. The film was written by Tom DeNucci, who will also direct, and photographed by cinematographer Sam Eilertsen. Michelle Verdi is the music supervisor for the film with executive producers Carl Dupre, David Lussier and Sherry Lussier.
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 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 and a petty criminal, 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.
