ONCE UPON A TIME IN VENICE – Official HD Trailer – Bruce Willis, Jason Momoa


Steve Ford (Bruce Willis) is a down but not out L.A based Private Investigator whose professional and personal worlds collide after his loving pet Buddy is stolen by a notorious gang. A series of crazy circumstances find him doing the gang’s bidding, while being chased by two vengeful Samoan brothers, a loan shark’s goons, and a few other shady characters. They say a dog is a man’s best friend, and Steve shows how far a man will go to be reunited with him.


Jeff Cardoni’s talents range from intimate independent fare to full orchestral majesty. With over 40 feature film scores and several network series to his credit, one can hear his work worldwide every day. His unique ability to cross genres has made him a powerful player in the film composing industry. Jeff originally studied classical piano, while playing percussion in school orchestra. But it would be rock and roll that would lead him to Los Angeles in 1997. He has received several ASCAP Film and Television Awards for his work on the worldwide hit CSI:Miami and was nominated for an Ariel Award for his score to the feature 7 Dias.

His body of work ranges from studio features such as Fox’s Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates, Step Up: All In, Just Friends, Open Season 3, Firehouse Dog and Miss March, independent films such as The Confirmation from Oscar nominated Bob Nelson (Nebraska) and The Vicious Kind (Sundance Premiere), to television scores such the hit Mike Judge comedy Silicon Valley for HBO, CBS drama The Defenders with James Belushi, The Lottery, and the worldwide Jerry Bruckheimer produced hit CSI:Miami.

Jeff is also an active songwriter, penning the theme songs to FX’s The League, MTV’s Pimp My Ride, and Fox’s MadTV, with songs appearing countless films, including Hard Knock Life with Mike Myers in Austin Powers, “Long Road Home” featuring Gene Simmons of Kiss for CSI, on camera songs for Fox’s Gotham, The Sweetest Thing with Cameron Diaz, A Walk To Remember, New York Minute and many others. Jeff produced several songs with Jon Lajoie for the soundtrack to The League, recent albums by indie pop artist Jules Larson for the soundtrack to The Lucky One and a Lexus spot with legendary alternative rock group The Pixies.

Recent scores include Middle School: The Worst Years Of My Life, and the new ABC comedy Speechless. Upcoming scores include Training Day series for CBS, the Netflix dramedy Girlboss, and Whitney Cumming’s feature directorial debut The Female Brain, and the feature Status Update.
