EAST GREENWICH, RI - October 2, 2012 (Menafn - Investorideas.com Newswire) Verdi Productions and the Woodhaven Production Company are pleased to announce the cable premiere of their film Loosies. Loosies will be shown worldwide by the Showtime network starting Oct 4th. Showtime acquired the paid cable rights earlier this year. Screen Media of NY has acquired Verdi's latest two films, Infected and Self-Storage. Infected will premiere at Rock and Shock on Oct 13th and will hit select theaters on Oct 25th. A special sneak peek of Self Storage will follow the Infected premiere and be released in select theaters in the first quarter of 2013.
Loosies, which was released theatrically earlier this year by IFC, tells the story of Bobby (Peter Facinelli), a NYC pickpocket passing as a Wall Street stockbroker who roams the city looking for marks. He must face reality when an old fling informs him she's pregnant, and the baby is his. Suddenly, two different worlds collide, forcing Bobby to reevaluate a lifetime of missteps, and make a big decision about his future.
The film stars Peter Facinelli (Twilight, Nurse Jackie, The Scorpion King), Jaimie Alexander (Thor, Rest Stop, Hallowed Ground), Vincent Gallo (Buffalo '66, The Brown Bunny, Tetro), Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2), and Joe Pantoliano (Memento, The Matrix, The Fugitive). The original soundtrack was composed and performed by Paul McDonald (American Idol), an original score by Chad Fischer ( Garden State ), and music supervision by Michelle Verdi, head of music and talent for both Verdi Productions and the Woodhaven Production Company.
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.
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 plays the role of Walter, a former black operative with an evil secret. Walter, along with his faithful brother at arms, Trevor (Michael Berryman), has 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, "Making four films over the last 24 months is one thing, but selling all four films and having the success they are receiving is simply mind blowing." Verdi added, "the landscape of filmmaking is changing daily. It's all about distribution and being able to get your product in front of as many people as possible and as quickly as possible, that's what Screen Media brings to the table. The days of small independent films spending tens of millions of dollars for their films to hit theaters is long gone. It was replaced by VOD and the ability of streaming video both at home and on handheld devices. Our goal was met when we received a national VOD release that reached over 100 million homes for both Inkubus and Loosies. That is what Screen Media was able to do with our first film Inkubus through Universal and what IFC did with Loosies.
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.
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 post production.
