Those 2011 Sundance Film Festival entries keep finding distribution deals. The Cinema Guild acquired U.S. rights to The Interrupters, a documentary about former gang members who disrupt and defuse violent situations as they happen. Pic was directed by Hoop Dreams‘ Steve James and author Alex Kotlowitz. The plan is to open in theaters this summer then broadcast on PBS’ Frontline, with PBC Distribution handling home video and digital in 2012.
