We’re excited to announce the release of Tankhouse, the feature film comedy with many of its scenes shot in Fargo, North Dakota! Our Click team helped film and produce the movie that tells the story of two Upper East Side New Yorkers who move to Fargo to start a theatrical revolution. Tankhouse is set to be released in theaters and on-demand Friday, May 13.
The movie stars Christopher Lloyd (The Tender Bar, Nobody), Richard Kind (Argo, Inside Out), Tara Holt (Ballers, Californication) and Stephen Friedrich (This is Us & Nice Girl Like You). You’ll also spot some local actors, including Lisa Kornkven, a teacher at one of our area schools.

Excerpt from the press release from Vertical Entertainment, an independent film distributor:
Inspired by the writers’ own experiences in the theater world, the film meets a thespian couple Tucker Charlemagne (Friedrich) and Sandrene St. Jean (Holt) as they are kicked out of the avant-garde acting scene in New York by their long-time guru, Buford Slezinger (Lloyd), forcing them to venture back to Sandrene’s hometown of Fargo, North Dakota to start a new theatre company and win a residency at the historic Fargo Theatre. Upon arrival, they discover that Fargo already has a theater company led by Sandrene’s ruthless former drama teacher Mr. Mortensen (Kind).
Through a whirlwind of immersive theater attacks, alleyway sing-offs, sabotage, and TMI cast bonding, Tucker, Sandrene, and the Tankhouse will stop at nothing to win, setting up an epic showdown with Mr. Mortensen’s Red River Players.
“This film is a love letter to the years we spent trying to make it in the theater, with a lot of scenes pulled almost verbatim from our own experiences, said Noam Tomaschoff, co-writer. “I hope that the next generation of thespians, as well as anyone who likes a good laugh and a tug at the heartstrings, will enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.”
