Brian Banks, the former high school football star that spent more than five years in jail after being falsely accused of rape, has signed a deal with Gidden Media to have his story made into a movie.

Now, we’ve learned Banks has inked a deal with Gidden Media, which will produce a full length feature film based on Brian’s story.
We’re told the movie will be produced by Amy Baer, who produced “Last Vegas” which starred Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro and Morgan Freeman.
It’s unclear when production is set to begin on the flick — but we’re told everyone involved is pretty pumped up about the situation.
Banks fought the allegations and was eventually exonerated. He was even able to live his dream when he signed with the Atlanta Falcons during this past offseason. He played in one preseason game before he was released.
