EVERETT, WASH. (AP) - The young Washington state man dubbed the Barefoot Bandit after a cross-country crime spree brought him folk outlaw status has reportedly signed a movie deal worth as much as $1.3 million with 20th Century Fox.

The Daily Herald reports (http://bit.ly/roMbAj) that the money will be used to help pay the minimum $1.4 million that 20-year-old Colton Harris-Moore owes in restitution to the victims of his two-year-long crime spree.

Seattle entertainment lawyer Lance Rosen negotiated the deal on Harris-Moore’s behalf. He says it’s an unusual amount of money to be paid for anyone’s life story rights.

Harris-Moore pleaded guilty in June to seven federal felony charges. Sentencing is set for October. He still faces state court charges.
