Filmed in and around Charlotte, North Carolina in late 2013, the true-story thriller Captive, starring David Oyelow (Selma) and Kate Mara (House of Cards, Fantastic Four), has been picked up by Paramount Pictures and now has a release date.
Paramount Pictures acquired worldwide rights and will release the film, from director Jerry Jameson, on September 18, 2015, according to THR.
Captive is based on the true events that occurred in Atlanta, Ga., on March 11, 2005, when Brian Nichols, played by Oyelowo, broke out of a courthouse jail and shot dead the judge assigned to his case as well as a court reporter, sheriff’s deputy, and FBI officer.
While eluding a statewide manhunt, Nichols took Ashley Smith (Mara), a single mother struggling with meth addiction, hostage in her own apartment. During her ordeal, Smith used a book she had been given, pastor Rick Warren’s The Purpose Driven Life, to reason with her captor.
