Actor signs to star in 'Loosies,' 'Paz'

Verdi-Corrente Prods. has signed “Twilight” actor Peter Facinelli to star in two features helmed by Michael Corrente.

Biopic “Paz,” based on the life of boxer Vinnie Pazienza, will launch early next year. Facinelli and Chad A. Verdi will co-produce both films.

Facinelli played Carlisle Cullen in the first two “Twilight” installments and will return in the third pic, “Eclipse,” set for a June release. He also stars opposite Edie Falco in Showtime’s dark comedy series “Nurse Jackie.”

Facinelli penned “Loosies,” in which he’ll play a successful pickpocket in the New York living the outlaw lifestyle until confronted with an old one-night stand who tells him that she is pregnant with his child.

“Paz” centers on Pazienza’s comeback from a near-fatal car accidentk. Told by doctors he would never walk again, Pazienza trained in secret and was able to re-enter the ring.

Corrente’s producing both films and Chad A. Verdi’s is co-producer. Corrente’s credits include “American Buffalo,” “Outside Providence” and “Brooklyn Rules.”
