Madsen, Gallo join Facinelli in pic

Verdi-Corrente Prods. has signed Michael Madsen and Vincent Gallo to star alongside Peter Facinelli (“Twilight”) in “Loosies,” a drama-comedy about a New York City pickpocket.

“Loosies,” which shoots in July, was penned by Facinelli. Michael Corrente (“Outside Providence”) directs. Facinelli portrays a successful pickpocket living the outlaw lifestyle until confronted with an old one-night stand who tells him she’s pregnant with his child.

Verdi-Corrente is in post-production on its first feature, horror film “Inkubus,” starring Robert Englund. The banner has hired writer Carl Dupre and director Glenn Ciano to pen the next installment.
