Who says crime doesn’t pay? Answer: someone who didn’t sell the movie rights to his crimes. THR reports that Colton Harris-Moore, the
“Barefoot Bandit”, has signed a deal worth $1.3 million with 20th Century Fox. However, the money won’t go into Harris-Moore’s pocket but
towards the $1.4 million he owes as restitution to his victims. Harris-Moore will write the script with Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black
Too bad he will be a million short in his restitution payments!
I will admit it, I was rooting for this kid all the way. Sure crime is bad, but he was smart and sarcastic along the way and most importantly he NEVER
in fact he gave money to a vet to go towards the care of animals!
On May 30 or 31, 2010, police found a handwritten note and US$100 at a veterinary clinic in Raymond, Washington, approximately 95 miles (150 km)
southwest of Seattle. The note read: Drove by, had some extra cash. Please use this money for the care of animals —Colton Harris-Moore,
(AKA: "The Barefoot Bandit"), Camano Island, WA.
I also found it amusing that a teenager could elude capture for so long....
It will be another catch me if you can type movie!
