More filming, big-name movies taking place in RI

In recent years, more and more filming has been taking place in Rhode Island, as cast and crew members flock to the Ocean State.

The Rhode Show was lucky enough to be on the scene with Rhode Island’s own Tom Denucci to get the scoop on his new movie.

“Almost Mercy is your classic revenge story. It’s about a couple of outcasts and deals with a lot of current issues that re going on right now in the news every day,” said Denucci, “So I think people are gonna be interested by kind of how ‘now’ the story is.”

These days when it comes to big time film making, its no longer all about Hollywood, but Rhode Island is a major player.

“People don’t realize what a great infrastructure Rhode Island has for making films – there’s tons of artists in Rhode Island, tons of filmmakers, and a lot of great, great talented actors,” said Denucci.

Almost Mercy has been sold to Universal, and they are aiming for a mid 2015 release.
