Boston's most notorious punk-rock gang leader lands debut film in competition at 2011 Sundance Film Festival

This just in: Elgin James, the Boston hardcore kid who was also the founder and leader of the notorious Boston street gang FSU, has landed his debut feature film in competition at the Sundance Film Festival. Variety describes Little Birds -- which James wrote and directed -- as "A friendship between two 15-year-old girls, one of whom follows the other from the Salton Sea to Los Angeles." The film stars Juno Temple, Kay Panabaker, Leslie Mann, Kate Bosworth, and Kyle Gallner.  A trailer is slated to hit the internets in the next couple days.

We reported last year on the FBI's indictment of James, just after he'd attended the prestigious Sundance Film Institute, a launchpad for indie filmmakers including Quentin Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson.
