Thinkfilm Lands Polanski Doco

ThinkFilm has nabbed U.S. theatrical and home video rights to Marina Zenovich’s Sundance-premiered documentary “Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired” says the trades.

The distributor acquired the film from HBO which will air it June 9th. A New York theatrical opening on July 11th will be followed by a summer platform rollout and late fall DVD release.

The feature’s look at the director’s statutory rape trial and subsequent fleeing of the U.S. prompted both acclaim and criticism for its nonjudgemental approach to the subject.
