The cast of “Self-Storage,” a horror movie from Woodhaven Production Co. and Verdi Productions, continues to grow with intriguing additions. Producers recently added professional wrestlers Tommy Dreamer and Thea Trinidad to a roster that already includes actors Eric Roberts, Jonathan Silverman, Michael Berryman and Eliza Roberts.
Dreamer is best known for his time spent with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). Known as the “Innovator of Violence,” he is a 14-time WWE Hardcore Champion. Trinidad is known as “Rosita” and currently competes for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. She is a former Tag Team Champion.
"We are very pleased to have signed both Dreamer and Trinidad. They bring a very special look and feel to the film," said Chad A. Verdi, one of the film’s producers.
“Self-Storage” was written by lead actor Tom DeNucci who plays Jake, a night watchman at a highly secured self-storage facility. Under the film’s premise, Jake’s friends are home from college and looking to party, so he invites them to his work to indulge in a night of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. However, the characters find themselves trapped in an evening of pure terror.
Filming began last month at a self-storage facility in East Greenwich, R.I. and is expected to wrap soon. "This film is going to be something very special. It started with a great script and now with this cast, the sky is the limit," Verdi said.
“Self-Storage” is the third film developed by Woodhaven Production Co. and Verdi Productions. In addition to his starring role, DeNucci is directing the movie and has a producer credit alongside Verdi and several others. The film has a targeted release date of March 2013.
