TAKE OUT stars Daniel Roebuck ("The Fugitive", "Bubba Ho-tep", "The Devil’s Rejects"), Chase Masterson ("Star Trek: Deep Space Nine") and Justin Walker ("Clueless"). It features a cameo appearance by the President of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Neil Giuliano, who plays a U.S. Senator during the movie’s surprise ending.
The producers are starting to submit to film festivals in hopes of making a smashing 2006 fest circuit debut. Festivals that have been or will be submitted to for consideration include: 2005 AFI and the 2006 editions of Sundance, Slamdance, Aspen/HBO, New Directors New Films, SXSW, Tribeca, San Francisco, Gen Art, Seattle, Cannes, Los Angeles, CineVegas, Montreal Comedy Fest & Telluride.
First-time writer/director Seth Landau returned to his hometown of Phoenix, AZ to shoot the movie last year and post-production was wrapped in Los Angeles during the summer of 2005. Landau, a former member of the AZ, TX and CA media, used much of his reporter experience to craft the story of "Take Out", which centers around a fictional newspaper called "The Arizona Tribune" and its corrupt editors and surrounding business landscape. When one iconoclastic reporter, Zack Turk, decides to make a BIG change, the fast food industry is in for a whirlwind attack. Take cover Chief Beef, Ba Ba BBQ Texas Feeder, Greasy Greaser, Shalom Bagel, et al!
"Take Out" also features savvy performances by Judd Omen ("Pee-wee’s Big Adventure"), Danny Zorn ("What Planet Are You From?", "I.Q."), Brent Taylor ("Starkweather") and Claire Titelman ("American Pie: Band Camp"); musical soundtrack includes Bang Sugar Bang, The Randies, Mr. Small and Midway.
