Q: The movie?

A: Yes, my book The Barefoot Bandit was optioned by 20th Century Fox for a feature film. This is the same project that they purchased Colton Harris-Moore’s life rights for and that he is cooperating with. All of the money from that life rights deal is going to pay restitution to the crime victims. Oscar-winning screenwriter Lance Black (he won for Milk and his most recent film was J. Edgar, which he did with Clint Eastwood) has finished the script. Lance met twice with Colt in Seatac Federal Detention Center. I’ll post updates about the movie when they happen. And no, they have not cast anyone to play Colt yet.
