A young man who eluded authorities as he stole bicycles, cars, light aircraft and speedboats sold the movie rights to his life story to 20th Century Fox, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The film rights were sold for "a tad over" $1 million, his lawyers told the paper.

Colton Harris-Moore, known as the "Barefoot Bandit," said he sold the rights on the condition that the money be used to compensate his victims.

The 20-year old,  who is accused of committing a series of burglaries and thefts -- many barefoot -- eluded authorities until he was captured in a high-speed boat chase in the Bahamas in July 2010. Tales of his exploits, which spanned from the San Juan Islands, across the country to the Bahamas, has gained him thousands of Facebook fans.

Harris-Moore said he won't profit from the sale of the film rights.

"I have absolutely zero interest in profiting from any of this and I won't make a dime off it," he said in a statement provided by his lawyers. "It all goes to restitution. That's what I insisted on from the beginning, and the contract I signed guarantees it."

The screenplay is already being written by Oscar-winning "Milk" screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, said Seattle lawyer John Henry Browne, who is representing Harris-Moore.

The news about the film rights comes as Harris-Moore is scheduled for sentencing. He is being held in the Federal Detention Center in SeaTac, Wash., and could get up to 10 years in prison.

"I did things that were not only a violation of law, but also of trust," he said in the statement. "I can't undo what I did. I can only try to make things better."
