Nigerian actor, David Oyelowo plays crazed murderer in new faith-based film "Captive"

Nigerian actor, David Oyelowo, plays the role of crazed murderer Brian Nichols in a newly released faith-based film titled "Captive".

Captive is based on a true story about Brian Nichols, who escapes from the Fulton County courthouse in Atlanta on March 11, 2005, shoots four people and holds a young mother and meth addict Ashley Smith as a hostage in her apartment. The film stars Selma star, David Oyelowo as Nichols and Kate Mara as Smith.

According to David in a recent interview with Christianpost, he took on the role of co-producer to ensure that the film stayed true to Smith's real-life account while not alienating viewers who might not subscribe to Christianity, which plays an integral role in the story.  

He adds, "I [also] don't think you have to lose Christians as an audience in order to tell a well-produced, well-written and hopefully well-acted story that can speak to a broader audience.
