Liquid Soul CEO Tirrell D. Whittley continues to do BIG things!! Just learned he is set to Executive Produce BRIAN BANKS, the biopic of the wrongfully imprisoned high school football star. I’ve worked with the dynamic LS team over the past few years and I’m excited to see this project come to life!
The film tells the story of Brian Banks (played by Aldis Hodge), an All-American high school football player committed to USC by his Junior year whose life was upended in 2002 when he was falsely accused of rape. Despite maintaining his innocence, Banks was railroaded through the justice system and sentenced to a decade of prison and parole. Ultimately, with the help of the California Innocence Project, Banks’ conviction was overturned in 2012. He fulfilled his dream in 2013 when he played in the NFL pre-season with the Atlanta Falcons.
Whittley has been a Hollywood marketing and production staple for years, with a unique talent for developing campaigns that drive cultural audiences to targeted and general market films and TV shows.
Stay tuned for more updates!
