Kate Mara & David Oyelowo Set for Real-Life Thriller 'Captive'

Kate Mara and David Oyelowo are set to star in the upcoming thriller Captive, which is based on a true story, according to THR.

The film will follow the true events that happened in Atlanta back in March 2005 when Brian Nichols (Oyelowo) broke out of a courthouse jail and shot four people dead: the judge assigned to his case, a court reporter, the sheriff’s deputy, and an FBI officer. While “eluding a statewide manhunt, Nichols took Ashley Smith (Mara), a single mother struggling with meth addiction, hostage in her own apartment. Over the course of her ordeal, Smith used a book she had been given, Rick Warren‘s ‘The Purpose Driven Life,’ to reason with her captor, with surprising results.”
