Captive is a new film set for release September 18, 2015. It starts the very talented David Oyelowo, who is widely known as the actor who portrayed Dr. Martin Luther King in the film Selma. My friend Jacob Sahms recently interviewed him for ScreenFish.net.
The film is based on the true account of serial killer and rapist Brian Nichols (Oyelowo), who on March 11, 2005 escaped police custody in Atlanta, killing a number of people. Not long afterwards, he took Ashley Smith (Kate Mara in the film) hostage for seven hours.
The film is based on the book Unlikely Angel that Ashley Smith wrote. The book has been recently released in paperback under the title of the film: Captive. Here’s the trailer:
The story is one of transformation. In her apartment as a hostage, Ashley Smith seeks guidance from Rick Warren’s bestselling book “The Purpose Driven Life.” While reading aloud, Ashley and her would-be killer each face crossroads where despair and death intersect hope.
