The Weinstein Company has announced that the title of its July 26-slated true crime drama, "Fruitvale," has changed to "Fruitvale Station." "Fruitvale" was a hit at Sundance earlier this year, winning the Audience Award and the Grand Jury Prize.

Written and directed by Ryan Coogler, "Fruitvale Station" concerns the last day in the life of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old who was shot and killed by a police officer at the eponymous East Bay location in 2008. It stars Michael B. Jordan ("Chronicle," "The Wire") as Grant, as well as Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer and Chad Michael Murray.
