You could use py_compile module like this:

##test.py############
fname = 'test_module.py'
src = 'import this_module_does_not_exist\n'
open(fname, 'w').write(src)
import py_compile 
py_compile.compile(fname)
print `open(fname+'c').read()`
#############

so just do:
import py_compile
py_compile.compile('File.py')

Best regards,
