"Captive" is based on the true story of Brian Nichols who, in 2005, took several lives in his escape from Atlanta's Fulton County courthouse, launching a full-scale police manhunt. David Oyelowo will play Nichols with Kate Mara starring as Ashley Smith, a single mother who Nichols took hostage and who was able to reason with Nichols, ultimately to the point that she was able to call the police. Later, Smith wrote about her ordeal in the book "An Unlikely Angel," which is providing the basis for the adapted screenplay.
