Casting directors are currently seeking extras to work on the upcoming feature film, “Captive” currently filming in North Carolina.
David Oyelowo (Jack Reacher) and Kate Mara (House of Cards) are set to star in the thriller, Captive, for director Jerry Jameson (Walker, Texas Ranger).
Written by Brian Bird and Reinhard Denke, and based on Ashley Smith’s book, “An Unlikely Angel”, Captive is based on the true events of an escaped prisoner who takes revenge on the people who put him in jail and takes a young woman hostage.
Oyelowo will play the convict, Brian Nichols, while Mara will play Smith, the woman Nichols takes hostage. Leonor Varela (Dallas) and Mimi Rogers (Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery) round out the cast. Captive is scheduled to begin principal photography this month.
CAPTIVE is a thriller based on true events that occurred in Atlanta, Ga., on March 11, 2005.
Brian Nichols (Oyelowo) breaks out of the courthouse jail and shoots 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 takes Ashley Smith (Mara), a single mother struggling with meth addiction, hostage in her own apartment.
Over the course of her harrowing ordeal, Smith desperately uses a book she has been given, Rick Warren’s THE PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE, to reason with her captor — with surprising and unforeseen results.
