Producers ‘Fly’ with Barefoot Bandit doc

Pic tells the story of captured teen Colton Harris-Moore

Barefoot Bandit Prods. and Stealth Media Group have launched production on feature documentary ”Fly Colt Fly,” based on the story of the teenage outlaw, Colton Harris-Moore.

Companies announced the project Thursday at the American Film Market.

Harris-Moore — best known as the Barefoot Bandit — was on the run for nearly three years after hot-wiring a Cessna, flying 400 miles before crashing in a field and vanishing into the wilderness. His crimes included a half dozen stolen boats, at least 10 cars and five stolen airplanes.

Producers plan to incorporate graphic novel style animation and dramatic recreations. The Gray Brothers, Adam and Andrew, will direct with animation by Sam Chou.

Producers are Paul Stephens and Eric Jordan of The Film Works in Canada. Michael Cowan of Spice Factory in the UK is exec producing.

Stealth plans to release the feature in late 2012.

20th Century Fox launched development of a ”Barefoot Bandit” film in April, 2010, while he was still on the lam. He was captured by authorities three months later in Harbour Island, Bahamas, as he attempted to flee on a boat.

Fox tapped Dustin Lance Black to adapt the script with David Gordon Green producing the Harris-Moore story through his Rough House Pictures production shingle.
