Black and the Barefoot Bandit

Black and the Barefoot Bandit


Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black will add yet another film biography to his resume when he adapts the story of Colton Harris-Moore, better known as "the Barefoot Bandit," to the big screen, reports Variety. The 19-year-old Harris-Moore grew up poverty-stricken, was convicted of his first crime at age 12 and his recent arrest in the Bahamas ended a two-year, cross-country, international, multimillion-dollar crime spree. He received the moniker by reportedly committing many of his crimes while barefoot. Black previously wrote the script for Pedro, about the late reality-television personality Pedro Zamora, won an Academy Award in 2009 for writing the screenplay for Milk, and is writing a screenplay for director Clint Eastwood about the life of notorious FBI director J. Edgar Hoover.
