SELMA star Nigerian-British Actor David Oyelowo has some good news following his powerful role as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the civil rights film. A new film he’s starring in has been picked up by Paramount Pictures.
Captive is based on the true events that occurred in Atlanta, Ga., on March 11, 2005. During that incident, 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.
Captive also stars Kate Mara-Starrer, Michael K. Williams, Mimi Rogers, Jessica Oyelowo and Leonor Varela.
