Double Dutch International has acquired international sales rights to the sports drama “4 Minute Mile” and will be introducing the title to international buyers in Cannes.

The film is directed by Charles-Olivier Michaud and stars Kelly Blatz, Analeigh Tipton, Cam Gigandet, Kim Basinger and Richard Jenkins.

The film is produced by Howard Burd, Micah Sparks, Deborah Moore, Mark DiSalle and Jennifer Reibman.

The script, written by Josh Campbell and Jeff Van Wie, centers on a high school track athlete — played by Blatz — struggling to overcome his inner-city surroundings with a deadbeat older brother (Gigandet) and an overwhelmed single mom, played by Basinger. He turns to running drug payments to a local dealer to keep his brother out of trouble.

Tipton plays the romantic interest and Jenkins portrays a damaged ex-track coach.
