...I was wondering if it's possible to open a Roth and roll my distribution into it?..

Once the distribution from the IRA happens the money that comes out is just like any other taxable money you receive. You can do whatever you want with in including depositing it into a Roth, if you are eligible. It would count towards your contribution for that year. Early in the year, before your taxes are due, you could contribute it as your prior years contribution.
