Brian Banks has signed on to make his true life story into a movie.
His luck seems to be turning around, but this started long before he was signing movie deals.
This happened after promising high school football player Banks was accused of raping Wanetta Gibson in 2002. Banks was convicted and spent five years in prison.
Later, he was exonerated after he met with Gibson and he taped her admittedly lying to the judge about the accusations. The conviction was overturned in May 2012.
