E-C-W! E-C-W! E-C-W! Ah, the chant still rings in our ears from the great days of Extreme Championship Wresting. And one of the main players from the early days, Tommy Dreamer, has been added to the cast of Self Storage.
One of the hardest of the hardcore, the one and only Tommy Dreamer recently joined the cast of Woodhaven Production Co.'s Self Storage. Additionally, TNA's lovely Rosita (aka Thea Trinidad) is also on board. With Michael Berryman, Eric Roberts and Jonathan Silverman already involved in the project, this is shaping up to be a really fun sounding cast.
From the Press Release
Rhode Island filmmaker Chad A. Verdi attached professional wrestling legend Tommy Dreamer (World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW)), along with Thea Trinidad (aka Rosita from Total Nonstop Action Wrestling), to his film Self Storage that is currently being lensed in Rhode Island.
Dreamer and Trinidad 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 the cast.
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 a 14-time WWE Hardcore Champion and a two-time world champion, having won the ECW World Championship twice, and 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 onscreen 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. 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.

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 is set to play the role of Walter, a former black operative with an evil secret. Walter, along with his faithful brother at arms, Trevor (Michael Berryman), have 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.
