NAPLES, Fla. - Todd Allen's creativity is known throughout the country.
"It's crazy, I get calls almost on a weekly basis from people who need help, who need assistance, you know it could be someone from New York, California, all throughout the country," said Todd Allen, a litigation attorney.
After Bank of American mistakenly tried to foreclose on Warren Nyerges' home. A Collier County court agreed: Nyerges never had a mortgage. A judge told Bank of America to pay their legal fees. But five months passed, so Allen went straight to the bank, literally, to get his clients the money a judge ruled they deserved.
"I'd like to not be known as a one hit wonder. there's times i'd like it to move on, obviously i think the story has it's own legs it's certainly a story that deserves to be told," said Allen.
And a producer in Los Angeles agreed.
"Wanted to shop a movie story about us to movie houses. So it's been around a couple of times, to Sony pictures, HBO, hopefully something will come of it," said Allen.
"I think it will be a very interesting movie having lived it," said Warren Nyerges.
Nyerges says he never expected the story to receive so much attention, making national airwaves on "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central. While Allen wouldn't say who he'd want to play him in the movie, he hopes the film will show people the true scope of the foreclosure crisis.
"Everybody knows someone knows somebody or experienced foreclosure in their own experience, so it's certainly timely," said Allen.
