After what I heard and read was a strong debut at the Sundance Film Festival yesterday, Ryan Coogler's feature film debut Fruitvale, which stars Octavia Spencer, Michael B. Jordan, Tristan Wilds and Melonie Diaz, is said to now be in the middle of what looks like a bidding war between several distributors who are very interested in the film.
