The new film Polanski: Wanted and Desired is a documentary that chronicles the 1977 conviction of Roman Polanski. According to Variety, HBO is top bidder for the rights to the documentary that covers one of the most bizarre stories to ever happen in Hollywood.

A six-figure deal for international rights brokered by The Weinstein Co. closed at the world premiere friday night. Director Marina Zenovich examines what really happened leading up to the Polish-born director's self-imposed exile from the U.S.

HBO Documentary has U.S. rights to Polanski: Wanted and Desired and no word on when they will provide a U.S. release.
