Summit Entertainment has acquired the rights to Snitch, starring Dwayne Johnson. The film, written by Justin Haythe and Ric Roman Waugh (also the director) is inspired by the Frontline documentary of the same name.
The plot follows a suburban dad (Johnson) whose teen is sentence to 10 years for drug dealing under the mandatory drug laws. In an attempt to reduce his son's sentence, he goes undercover to catch a senior drug dealer.
Summit Entertainment secured the U.S rights only. Alliance films already bought the rights in Canada, the UK, and Spain.
