The parents of a 6-year-old girl who was raised by her alleged kidnapper after she was believed to have died in a fire have sold the rights to their life stories for a movie and book.

The buyer is the Larry A. Thompson Organization of Beverly Hills, Calif., maker of TV movies including "And the Beat Goes On: The Sonny and Cher Story" and "Lucy & Desi: Before the Laughter."

Terms of the deal call for a six-figure payment up front and an additional six figures once production on the movie begins, Thompson said.

Authorities believe Delimar Vera was kidnapped in Philadelphia in 1997 when she was 10 days old and her house set ablaze to cover the crime.

Carolyn Correa was found raising the girl and is charged with kidnapping and arson. Delimar was reunited with her family earlier this month.
