David Arquette has always taken pride in being a Hollywood outsider — even though he’s from a long dynasty of acclaimed actors — and he continues with this outsider status in his new film, The Big Break.

Written and directed by Gil Freston, and billed as Hollywood’s first mini-movie, The Big Break is a 15-minute send-up of every Hollywood stereotype of every film ever made.
In the film, a struggling actor, a delusional director, a two-faced talent agent, and a Gen-X cop collide when they realize that they and everyone around them are spinning a web of lies. When friends and aspiring actors, Will and Jon meet for lunch at a prototypical health restaurant in West Hollywood, their meeting spirals into a deadly altercation with a spin class instructor that escalates into a shootout with the police. The duo battles their way across Los Angeles with the media and social media influencers capturing their every move and arrive at their talent agency where they take their agent hostage. In a blockbuster finale atop Runyon Canyon, the aspiring power players realize that ultimate survival in Hollywood often comes at the high price for fame and…their egos.
The talented cast also includes social media stars Brittany Furlan, Ammar Kandil & Thomas Brag aka YES Theory, and Elizabeth Turner. It also includes seasoned actors David Shabtai, Isabelle McNally, and Thomas Cocquerel.
The premiere party for The Big Break will take place on January 15th in Los Angeles, CA. You can check out the trailer for the film below.
