EAST GREENWICH, RI - May 22, 2013 ( Newswire) Verdi Productions and The Woodhaven Production Company announce that RI filmmaker Chad A. Verdi attaches star actors Geoff Stults ( Wedding Crashers, 7th Heaven ) and Kristen Chenoweth ( Bewitched,The Pink Panther) to his next feature film, A Bet's A Bet. Stults and Chenoweth will join Oscar nominee Eric Roberts, Best Director Jonathan Silverman and three time Emmy winner Jennifer Finnigan. More star studded cast members will be announced soon with filming to commence in Rhode Island in early June.

One of the film's directors Jonathan Silverman recently won the Best Director award at the 2013 LA Comedy Festival for National Lampoon's film, Another Dirty Movie. The Los Angeles Comedy Festival is the largest comedy festival in the United States featuring Film, Live Comedy Acts and a Screenplay Competition. Verdi stated, "this film is shaping up very nicely and will be a huge success for everyone involved."

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!"

As previously announced, Producers Chad A.Verdi and Gino Pereira will produce four films in the state of RI and employ hundreds of people over the next 18 months: "This film will mark the second film of four on one of the most aggressive production schedules ever attempted by a production company. It's not often that a film has co-directors, but after numerous face to face meetings and months of discussions, Mr. Pereira and I both felt this was best for the project. Jonathan and Jennifer bring years of experience in film and so much passion to this project. Jonathan has acted in two of my prior films, while coming on board as an executive producer in my latest film, Self Storage. He also just directed National Lampoon's most recent comedy, Another Dirty Movie that is due out this August. Jennifer is currently starring in David E Kelley's new TNT drama, Monday Mornings. Both Silverman and Finnigan are dear friends and have supporting roles in the film and it's going to be great working with them."

Verdi and Pereira have added Mark Mussina, Michael Mussina, Pete Goldfinger, David Gere, Seth Rosenblit, Adam Alexander, Larry Allison Jr., Daniel Klingerman, Tom DeNucci and Claire Severance as executive producers with Michelle Verdi as the music supervisor."We are in a great position because we are making films knowing that they're already sold and have distribution," Verdi stated. "Of the four films, two will be horror, one a comedy and the final will be my passion project Bleed For This, the inspirational true story of World Champion Boxer Vinny Paz. After a near fatal car crash left Vinny not knowing if he'd ever walk again, never mind box, he went on to make one of the most incredible comebacks in sports history. To secure success and to meet our timetable, we will be using four different directors and over 100 actors on these four different directors.

Verdi stated, "my producing partner Noah Kraft and I got involved in the film business in 2009 with one purpose: to have the story of Vinny Paz told. Over the past four years, I have produced 5 feature films with another two slated for this year. Recently, Ben Younger came on board to write and direct. Bleed For This is Ben's vision and he now has the support of Martin Scorsese and Emma Tillinger Koskoff, who are producing. I was introduced to Martin and Emma through Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, who has been instrumental in helping me develop these projects."

Verdi's just wrapped his latest film Army of the Damned and has two films, Infected and Self Storage being released through Screen Media and will each reach over 100 million homes through Universal's VOD platform starting this month with Infected.
