Chosen Family (2024)

Verdi Productions completed the filming of Chosen Family, on which Heather Graham served as writer, director and star (Boogie Nights, Austin Powers). Co-starring are Julia Stiles (10 Things I Hate About You, The Bourne Identity), Thomas Lennon (Reno 911!), Michael Gross (Family Ties), Andrea Savage (Tulsa King), John Brotherton (Fuller House), Julie Halston (Addams Family Values), Odessa Rae (Hard Candy) and Ella Grace Helton (Hubie Halloween). The picture-postcard romantic comedy wrapped production in Rhode Island last week.

Principal photography took place throughout Rhode Island including East Greenwich, Providence, Warwick and North Kingstown.

Rhode Islanders Chad A. Verdi, Michelle Verdi, Chad Verdi Jr., Paul Luba and Anthony Gudas produced Chosen Family. Many talented Ocean State residents had roles both in front of and behind the camera. Andre Relis and Michael Nickles also produced.

In Chosen Family, Ann is played by Heather Graham who portrays a yoga teacher trying to find inner peace while her family is manic and her dating life is miserable. Ann doesn’t know how to say “no” and finds herself fixing everyone’s problems. Meanwhile, she meets the perfect guy but soon finds herself competing with his daughter for his attention. Struggling to repair her estranged relationship with her sister, Ann relies on her friends to be her rock through life’s toughest decisions.

“I’m so excited to be making my dream project with an amazing team!” said writer/director/actor Heather Graham.

“In a male-dominated industry we love supporting women! Heather’s drive writing directing and starring in this film has been wonderful to witness,” said producers Chad A. Verdi & Michelle Verdi.

Steven Feinberg Executive Director of the RI Film Office stated that “It’s been a joy having Heather Graham; Julia Stiles & the fantastic cast here in Rhode Island enthusiastically working side by side with such a diverse & talented team of local professionals organized by Chad and Michelle Verdi and their Verdi Productions producing executives. The beautiful locations were ideal for Heather’s story & we anticipate that this romantic comedy will touch many hearts and minds when it unfurls before the audience. Warm congratulations to all.“
