Colton Harris-Moore, the infamous “Barefoot Bandit” who briefly hid out on Abaco during his crime spree in 2010 before being captured later that year in Harbour Island, has had his court-ordered restitution settled by a Hollywood studio in exchange for the rights to his personal story. The studio paid over $1 million.

According to The Seattle Times, a check was written to the U.S. Marshal’s office on behalf of Harris-Moore by 20th Centruy Fox.

The Barefoot Bandit’s story is now primed for a motion picture.

Harris-Moore was sentenced in 2012 to six and a half years in prison in addition to the court ordered restitution.
