EAST GREENWICH, RI -- (Marketwire) -- 08/02/12 -- The Woodhaven Production Company is pleased to announce the signing of professional wrestling legend Tommy Dreamer and (TNA) Wrestler Thea Trinidad. Dreamer is best known for his time spent with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW). After nine years and leaving the WWE in 2010, Dreamer worked for "Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA). Among other accolades, he is fourteen-time WWE Hardcore Champion and a two-time world champion, having won the "ECW World Championship twice. Dreamer is the only man to have won this title in both the original company and in the WWE re-launch. The man famously known as the "Innovator of Violence" in the ring now brings the same ferocity to his on screen roles. Thea Trinidad aka Rosita is a female professional wrestler, currently competing for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. In TNA, she is a former Tag Team Champion.

They join Oscar Nominated actor Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight, The Expendables) and horror legend Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest) along with Jonathan Silverman (Weekend at Bernie's, Inkubus) in Self Storage. Verdi stated, "We are very pleased to have signed both Dreamer and Trinidad, they bring a very special look and feel to the film." Filming began in mid-July on location in East Greenwich, RI and is expected to wrap very soon. The company will soon be releasing new behind the scene photos to its fan base.

Self Storage, written by Rhode Island actor/writer/producer Tom DeNucci (Inkubus, Loosies, Infected), tells the story of Jake, the night watchman working at a highly secured self storage facility. His pals are home from college and looking to party. Jake (Tom DeNucci) invites them to his work for a fiesta of his own. Innocent mischief turns a naughty night of sex, drugs and rock and roll into an evening of pure terror. Barbed wire fences are meant to keep people OUT. But these fences keep people IN. Eric Roberts plays the role of Walter, a former black operative with an evil secret. Walter, along with his faithful brother at arms, Trevor (Michael Berryman), has some unfinished business with a seedy underworld grifter, Jonah (Jonathan Silverman). Black market business mixes with pleasure when Jake and his pals stumble upon this heinous covert operation.

Verdi stated, "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 is planning for a March 2013 release. Self Storage is being produced by Verdi, Gino Pereira and Tom DeNucci. DeNucci will direct. Michelle Verdi will head music and soundtrack.

Woodhaven added Executive-Producers Danielle Corsa, David and Sherry Lussier, David Gere, Carl Dupre and Jonathan Silverman to the project. David Gere was instrumental in the signing of Dreamer and Trinklad. Local actors, Tom Paolino, Billy Vigeant, Sera Verdi, Chad Verdi, Jr. and Tanya Lynch round out the cast.

Self Storage is Woodhaven's third horror film to be produced in the last 20 months. Woodhaven released Inkubus, a slasher flick starring horror icon Robert Englund (the original Freddy Krueger), in theaters last Halloween to sell-out crowds. DVDs hit stores nationwide February 21st. The film has now sold more than 100 thousand units through outlets like Wal-Mart, RedBox, and Amazon and is currently on VOD.

Woodhaven's next film Infected will hit theaters this October. Infected, a horror/zombie thriller set in the woods of New England, centers around Terry, an absentee father (Michael Madsen), and his son Andrew (Tom DeNucci -Inkubus, Loosies) who must fight for survival when their small, close-knit hunting group becomes infected with a virus that originated from a rabid deer they killed and consumed. This infection causes the crew, including Doctor Denehey (William Forsythe), to become homicidal and violent and gives them an insatiable, cannibalistic thirst for humans. In this modern day Night of The Living Dead, the father and son duo are forced to relinquish old friendships as their former hunting buddies become... Infected.

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.

In the rush to compete in the digital age, a successful digital transformation is essential, but many organizations are setting themselves up for failure. There’s a common misconception that the process is just about technology, but it’s not. It’s about your business. It shouldn’t be treated as an isolated IT project; it should be driven by business needs with the committed involvement of a range of stakeholders.
In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
