Film producer Chad A. Verdi has announced his intentions for the sequel to “Self Storage,” a horror movie released earlier this year starring Eric Roberts, Jonathan Silverman and Michael Berryman. Verdi’s company Verdi Productions co-produced the film with Woodhaven Production Co.
“We're thinking of coming back with ‘Self Storage 2’ for our next horror movie," Verdi said. “‘Infected’ is doing great, but the reason for ‘Self Storage 2’ is because Eric Roberts really wants to come back and work with us.”
Other names mentioned in association with the sequel include Robert Englund, Bill Moseley, Tony Todd and Silverman.
"The premise would be the one character who survives the original film will hunt down Eric Roberts because he's killed all his friends," Verdi said. "It's more of a revenge film. Then Eric goes into the underworld to hide and he meets the Tony Todds of the world, the Robert Englunds of the world and the Bill Moseleys of the world, and they protect him.”
The first film was directed by lead actor Tom DeNucci and shot in East Greenwich, R.I. DeNucci plays Jake, a night watchman at a highly secured self-storage facility. 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 stumble upon a covert black-market operation and find themselves trapped in an evening of pure terror.
Eliza Roberts and professional wrestlers Tommy Dreamer and Thea Trinidad also appear in the film.
