Commando, ever vigilant

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.
