Verdi Productions Next Feature VAULT Green-lit for 2018; Verdi Taps Tom DeNucci to Direct
EAST GREENWICH, RI–(Marketwired – May 03, 2017) – Investorideas.com reports that Verdi Productions taps writer director Tom DeNucci to direct its next feature film, Vault. Vault will start principal photography in early 2018 and will be filmed entirely in the state of Rhode Island.
The debut of Verdi Productions documentary film entitled “Man in Red Bandana” was screened at Tribeca on Sunday, April 23rd. The film was part of a special screening and was an invite-only event. The film will hit theaters and VOD platforms throughout the US in a limited day and date release in September 2017. This will be the third film released by Verdi Productions over the last two years, following Ten Thousand Saints, starring Ethan Hawke and Hailee Steinfeld, and Bad Hurt, starring Theo Rossi, Karen Allen, and Ashley Williams.
Written by B. Dolan and Tom DeNucci and inspired by true events, Vault tells a story about a group of small time criminals in 1975 who attempt to pull off the biggest heist in American history; stealing over $30 million from the Mafia in the smallest state in the union, Rhode Island.
Verdi Productions will soon start attaching an A-list producing team along with an A-List cast, (think Casino, Goodfellas and the Godfather).
Verdi stated, “This project has been secretly in development for over six years now, and now the time has come to make it a reality.” Just like Bleed For This and Silence, this story will hit the big screen. Verdi added, “Tom DeNucci is one of the most talented directors I have ever worked with. He lives this story in his head 24/7 and will direct an award-winning film that all of RI and the world will be very proud of.”
Michelle Verdi (Silence, Bleed For This, Loosies) will be the executive producer and music supervisor for the film. Sam Eilertsen will be the director of photography.

Man In Red Bandana
The film was written and directed by Matthew J. Weiss with Chad A. Verdi and Joshua Sason producing. Executive Producers are Michelle Verdi, Neil Cortel and Tom DeNucci. The film editors are Doug Forbes and Sam Eilertsen. The film is narrated by Gwyneth Paltrow with an original song performed by Lyle Lovett.
Man in Red Bandana tells the incredible story of Welles Crowther, a 24-year old civilian who gave his life saving others in the South Tower of the World Trade Center on 9/11. His heroics included carrying a woman on his shoulder down 17 flights of stairs. His bravery and courage only came to light eight months later due to an ordinary object — a red bandana. Through interviews, archive footage, re-creations and animation, the film depicts Welles’ story in an engaging and educational manner. The ending depicts the diverse ways that Welles is honored throughout the United States leading to the revelation of a secret about Welles that can only be described as beautifully inspirational.
Verdi stated, “Many of Welles’ family and friends will be in attendance for this very special screening. It’s truly an honor to be able to share Welles’ incredible story with the world.”
Verdi and Sason will donate all net profits to the Welles Remy Crowther Trust
