Filmmaker Chad A. Verdi Taps Tom DeNucci to Direct Army of the Damned, Filming Begins in April
Don’t look now but the Woodhaven Production Company is at it again. Producer Chad A. Verdi has announced his newest film, Army of the Damned, will begin filming in April.
Verdi was so impressed with Tom DeNucci, who wrote and directed his previous film, Self Storage, that he handed him the reins of this film as well.
Woodhaven has previously released the Robert Englund vehicle Inkubus, followed by Infected which starred William Forsythe and Michael Madsen. Dig the original artwork for Army of the Damned below.
From the Press Release
Verdi Productions and The Woodhaven Production Company announce that Rhode Island filmmaker Chad A. Verdi has tabbed writer/director Tom DeNucci to direct his next horror film, 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 Verdi and Gino Pereira as producers on the project. The film will be shot by cinematographer Sam Eilertsen.
Army of the Damned tells the story of a hit reality TV show film crew following a group of local cops in a sleepy town. Things go horribly wrong 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. The lawmen do all they can to serve, protect and avoid joining the Army of the Damned.
Verdi will produce four films in the state of Rhode Island over the next 18 months. "This film will mark the start of one of the most aggressive production schedules ever attempted by a production company. It was not our intention to try to film all four feature films in 18 months, we had a five year plan when we started out. But due to actor and director commitments, along with the financing and distribution schedule, we decided to pull the trigger and run with it," Verdi said
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 with Infected on April 10 and Self-Storage on June 2. The release dates on both films were moved up due to high demand.
