96 Minutes, a film we profiled back in March, soon after its debut at the SXSW Film Festival, which Evan Ross (who won a breakthrough performance award at SXSW for his work in the film) and David Oyelowo both co-star in, has been acquired by ARC Entertainment and XLrator Media (North American rights specifically), in a partnership, with plans to release the thriller in early 2012. Synopsis reads:

... tells the harrowing story of a carjacking and four kids caught in the terrifying maelstrom of one night. Intercutting between the car and the beginning of that day, we follow the separate stories of each kid - where they come from, who they are, and how they all ended up in one car on this fateful night. Their worlds are starkly divided along class lines, but on this one night, their lives slam headlong into each other. Not all of them are innocent. Not all of them survive. These 96 minutes will change everything.

Ross plays one of the 4 kids, and from the trailer that follows below, and given his breakthrough performance award, it looks like he features quite prominently in the film. I'm not certain what David Oyelowo's role is in it however. The flick is directed by Aimee Lagos, her feature film directorial debut. Trailer and poster below:
