EAST GREENWICH, RI - April 29, 2014 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Verdi Productions and The Woodhaven Production Company, along with award-winning producer Chad A. Verdi are pleased to announce a worldwide distribution deal for ‘A Bet's a Bet’ and principal photography of their next feature film, ‘Almost Mercy’.
Verdi Productions has signed a five-year worldwide distribution deal with Vantage Media International, LLC (VMI) for its latest film, A Bet's A Bet. The film will be screened at the Cannes Film Festival next month for foreign sales and will receive a worldwide VOD release in the fourth quarter of 2014 that will reach over 100 million homes. The premiere is scheduled for September 2014 at the Showcase Cinema in Warwick, RI with an LA premiere to follow.
Chad A. Verdi, film producer and CEO of Verdi Productions stated, "We are very excited about this film and the deal we put together with VMI. VMI has done a great job with selling the foreign rights to my past films, ‘Inkubus’ and ‘Infected’. The film business is all about distribution and having this deal in place along with our ten picture deal with Screen Media, elevates our production companies to the forefront of the industry." Verdi added, "These kinds of distribution deals open up many other doors for us. Very soon we will announce two new projects with some of the biggest names in Hollywood attached, although, these new deals are outside of the ten picture deal now in place with Screen Media.”
A Bet's a Bet, written by Mark Mussina and Steven Sessions, tells the story of Vince, New England 's most successful divorce attorney. To Vince, life is one big competition, and losing is unacceptable. This also applies in his dating life, with his love 'em and leave 'em approach. Then Vince meets Jane, who is beautiful, successful and also extremely driven. Together they enter into a series of entertaining wagers with each other where the winner gets to decide the fate of the loser. After all, "A Bet's a Bet!"
The actors include Mena Suvari (American Beauty, American Pie), Geoff Stults (Wedding Crashers, The Break Up), Josh Hopkins (GI Jane, Cougar Town), 2-time Emmy winner Kristin Chenoweth (Bewitched, Glee), Oscar nominee Eric Roberts (The Expendables, The Dark Knight), and Kenan Thompson (Saturday Night Live). The film was directed by Jonathan Silverman (Weekend at Bernie's, Brighton Beach Memoirs) and 3-time Emmy winner Jennifer Finnigan (Monday Mornings, Better with You) who both also have roles in the film.
Verdi's current film ‘Almost Mercy’ begins principal photography today in Rhode Island. Tom DeNucci co-wrote the film and is directing. This will be the third film DeNucci has directed for The Woodhaven Production Company.
Almost Mercy takes place in a quaint New England town with a seedy gym teacher, played by Kane Hodder (Jason X, Monster, Hatchet) and an overzealous preacher, played by Bill Moseley (The Devil's Rejects, Night of the Living Dead, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2).
‘We focus on two outcast teens, Emily (Danielle Guldin) and Jackson (Jesse Dufault) as they run the gauntlet of evil this town has to offer, dealing with issues far too common in our society. A new breed of horror is imagined through a fear that has never hit closer to home.’
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.
