$3,500-Budget Award-Winning Action-Comedy Sets Digital Debut for North American VOD Platforms on September 13, 2022
Freestyle Digital Media, the digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Allen Media Group, has acquired North American VOD rights to the action-comedy THE TAKE OUT MOVE. THE TAKE OUT MOVE will be available to rent and own on North American digital HD internet, and satellite platforms on September 13, 2022 through Freestyle Digital Media.
Made for only $3,500, THE TAKE OUT MOVE is an action-packed, R-rated comedy that won Best Feature / Best Comedy awards at 11 international film festivals. THE TAKE OUT MOVE tells the story of what happens after a shadowy figure instructs two different men to take out the same woman. When they end up at her home at the same time, they must fight each other through absurd situations to be the one to complete the assignment.
Written, produced, and directed by Andrew Simonian, THE TAKE OUT MOVE stars Jeremy Sless (‘Whalen’), Nick Grace (‘Davis’), Alexandra Miles (‘Amber’), and Zack Kozlow (‘Mr. Fanst’).
“After a couple of decades working in television, I wanted to show that anyone can make an entertaining feature film without having to raise money,” said filmmaker Andrew Simonian. “Stop waiting for other people’s permission and go make your movie, anything is possible if you are passionate about telling a good story. The result is this stylish, fast-paced action-comedy that I wrote and directed for only $3,500.”
Freestyle Digital Media negotiated the deal to acquire THE TAKE OUT MOVE with Glen Reynolds of Circus Road Films.
