NEW: RI Native Chad Verdi Scores Scorsese for Paz Film

Monday, May 13, 2013

 

Rhode Island native Chad Verdi has scored Martin Scorsese to sign on as an executive producer on Verdi's upcoming film based on Vinny Paz.

Verdi is CEO of Verdi Productions (VP), a fully funded film production company located in East Greenwich, Rhode Island with additional offices in New York City. The company pursues all aspects of filmmaking; carrying projects from conception of script through postproduction.

VP is establishing itself as a fixture in the Rhode Island community, and does not operate on a project-to-project basis, but instead functions like a west coast studio with established offices, full time employees, and a continuous stream of product.

Over the past two years, Verdi Productions and The Woodhaven Production Company, a subsidiary of Verdi Productions, has invested over $10 million dollars into four feature films. One feature, entitled “Loosies,” was sold to IFC films and is now on Showtime. It stars Peter Facinelli (Twilight), Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs), Vincent Gallo (Buffalo '66), Joe Pantoliano (The Matrix), and Jaimie Alexander (Thor).

By the end of 2013, Verdi Productions will have produce an additional two feature films (for a total of six films in twenty four months),employ close to 200 people at an average salary exceeding $30,000 dollars, and have over $10 million dollars of private equity invested into the state of Rhode Island. In addition, the company has enough intellectual property (scripts) to extend its production schedule through 2016
