MUMBAI: Paramount Pictures has secured the worldwide distribution rights to Captive, starring David Oyelowo and Kate Mara. The studio will release the film on 18 September, 2015.

Directed by veteran filmmaker Jerry Jameson, the film is based on the book Unlikely Angel: The Untold Story of the Atlanta Hostage Hero by Ashley Smith with Stacy Mattingly. The film?s screenplay is by Brian Bird.

Oyelowo said, ?I was drawn to this story because it beautifully illustrates how a broken spirit can be healed by an unexpected source of hope. I feel blessed to be continuing my very fruitful relationship with Paramount.?

Also starring Michael K Williams, Mimi Rogers, Jessica Oyelowo and Leonor Varela, the film was produced by Terry Botwick, Jerry Jameson, David Oyelowo and Ken Wales in addition to BN Films' Alex Garcia, Lucas Akoskin and Katrina Wolfe. The executive producers are Santiago Garcia Galvan, BN's Jonathan Gray, Elliott Lester, Ralph Winter and Bird. BN fully financed the picture.

Botwick added, ?In March of 2005 Ashley?s story captivated the nation on news outlets everywhere. Her story is thrilling and redemptive as God intersected the lives of two very broken people in the most dramatic way. It has been amazing getting to know Ashley and to be working with such fine actors. I?m so pleased to also be partnering with Paramount to bring this authentic encounter to a worldwide audience.?

?Jerry Jameson has done a fantastic job bringing to life Ashley Smith's harrowing ordeal and miraculous redemption, and Kate Mara portrays her with phenomenal sensitivity and poignancy. Along with Nightingale, Captive also represents our second collaboration with the brilliantly talented David Oyelowo. We look forward to continuing this special relationship with David and believe that the film has found the perfect home at Paramount,? said AG Studios (holding company of BN Films) president Alex Garcia.

The film tells the dramatic, thrilling and spiritual true story of Ashley Smith (Mara), a single mother and recovering drug addict who was taken hostage in her own apartment by fugitive, murderer and accused rapist Brian Nichols (Oyelowo). With her back against the wall, Smith turned to the personal spiritual journey of Rick Warren?s best-selling book The Purpose Driven Life in an attempt to survive and help Brian find a better way out.
