Garrison Writing Screenplay

Actor LANE GARRISON is returning to work following his recent prison stint - he's writing a screenplay based on the true life story of a troubled American football team.
The former Prison Break star was locked up in November 2007 on charges of vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence of cocaine and alcohol following an accident in December 2006, which left a 17-year-old passenger dead.
He was due to serve 40 months behind bars in California, but was released early in April (09) for good behaviour.
Garrison has since enrolled in a rehabilitation treatment programme to kick his drug habit and is now ready to get back into showbusiness with One Heart.
The 29 year old is working on transferring the story of a football team from Texas' Gainesville State School, made up of young convicted criminals involved in drugs, violence and robbery, to the big screen.
The film will follow the kids in their 2008 season, when they lost every game they played, before going on to turn their lives and fortunes around.
The once-embattled Garrison heard of the Gainesville story from pals and was inspired to take on the project after welling up at the team's sad struggle.
He says, "I was moved to tears, because I knew who those kids were because I was one of them. I knew what it was to be locked away and feel hopelessness and feel like, 'Will I ever have another redeeming quality? Will I have a second chance?'"
