Brothers Ian and Eshom Nelms have been tapped to direct the thriller Capture for John Wick production company Thunder Road.

The story centers on a former SFPD officer who is wrongfully accused of being the culprit of a devastating terrorist attack and must race against time to prove his innocence and stop the next bombing. Albert Torres wrote the screenplay, which was developed with Fermion Films. 

Along with Thunder Road, Capture will be produced by 3 Arts Entertainment. Basil Iwanyk, Tom Lassally and Erwin Stoff will produce, with Nik Bower and Deepak Nayar’s Riverstone Pictures set to finance. Esther Hornstein will oversee the project for Thunder Road. 

After a few indie titles (Waffle Street, Lost on Purpose) that made their way around the festival circuit, the Nelms brothers recently released their biggest project to date, Small Town Crimes, which stars John Hawkes, Octavia Spencer, Anthony Anderson and Robert Foster.

The Nelms brothers are repped by ICM, LBI Entertainment and Lichter Grossman.
