19 Aug DEADLINE: Freestyle Digital Media Acquired North American Rights To The Action-Comedy The Take Out Move & To Documentary A Pebble In The Pond– Film Briefs
EXCLUSIVE: Freestyle Digital Media has acquired North American rights to the action-comedy The Take Out Move, and to the documentary A Pebble in the Pond. The digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Allen Media Group will release both titles across digital and VOD platforms on September 13.
Made for only $3,500, The Take Out Moveis an action-packed, R-rated comedy that 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, directed and produced by Andrew Simonian, the film stars Jeremy Sless, Nick Grace, Alexandra Miles and Zack Kozlow.
A Pebble in the Pond tells the story of Anne Banning, a forgotten American pioneer who formed the female-organized-and-run non-profit organization Assistance League, which has been helping people for 125 years. The doc hosted by Ann Benson takes viewers on a journey that includes multiple chapters of Assistance League and the people whose lives the organization has touched — including a former NFL player, an assault survivor who now helps other women, an orthodontist who was helped as a teen, the organization’s dedicated volunteers, and the countless children impacted even today by Assistance League’s signature program, Operation School Bell. Benson also produced the pic from writer-director Paul Howard, alongside Gareth Fient, Marc Wiercioch, and Ettore Zuccarelli of EZ Productions. Howard served as EP, with Karis Campbell as narrator.
Freestyle Digital Media negotiated the deals to acquire The Take Out Move and A Pebble in the Pond with Glen Reynolds of Circus Road Films. Watch the trailers for both films below.
