Barefoot Bandit: Bareback Black Back For Biopic


This great news just in!
According to Variety, Dustin Lance Black is set to write the script of a movie about Colton Harris-Moore, the Barefoot Bandit, for 20th Century Fox.
Fagburn likes Lance Black - who won a Best Original Screenplay Oscar for Milk (here's his acceptance speech) - almost as much as he likes Colt.
Dreamy Dustin had a little local difficulty involving a leaked video tape a year ago, but we're not going to dwell on that.
Though this post's title won't make any sense unless you know what it was. Sorry.
I'm not one to be judgmental - I think we're all allowed to fuck up big time from time to time.
And besides, one of the reasons I love Colton is he managed to make a career out of exactly that.
Maybe Dustin will gay the story up; make it a sort of Bareback's Barefoot Brokeback Mountain?
Anyway, something tells me this is slightly more likely to happen than that nonsense about Mickey Rourke playing Gareth Thomas earlier this week.
We also hope this news lifts the sprit of Harris-Moore who police brought back to Seattle today for his trial proceedings.
Our thoughts are with him at this difficult time.
