We've talked about Elgin James' colorful past on numerous occasions but we're now finally on the brink of seeing what he can offer with his debut film "Little Birds." Born out of the Sundance Labs, the film premiered to a warm reception at Park City last year but -- possibly due to a recent incarceration -- won't see a theatrical release until this summer.

We've talked about Elgin James' colorful past on numerous occasions but we're now finally on the brink of seeing what he can offer with his debut film "Little Birds." Born out of the Sundance Labs, the film premiered to a warm reception at Park City last year but -- possibly due to a recent incarceration -- it won't see a theatrical release until this summer.

We've got our hands on a heap of images from the film which showcase the talented cast including Juno Temple and Kay Panabaker -- who star as two 15-year-olds who test the limits of their friendship when one follows the other to Los Angeles -- along with Kyle Gallner, Kate Bosworth and Leslie Mann also co-starring. It kind of sounds like a run-of-the-mill tale but with rising star Temple front and center, we're hoping it'll make for worthy viewing either way.

Post-release, James already has a follow-up lined up, teaming with Electric City Entertainment duo Jamie Patricof ("Half Nelson," "Blue Valentine") and Lynette Howell for indie hostage-thriller "Come Sundown," from a script by Justin Marks. As a refresher, here's the full trailer for "Little Birds" as well.
