Meet Betty and Barney Hill, a New Hampshire couple who claim they were abducted by a UFO on September 19, 1961. The mixed race couple state that they were of interest to the aliens in question and were "returned to their lives with missing memories that were later retrieved under hypnosis."
Eric Robinson, who is producing 'Captured' on behalf of Gotham/Principle says: "Captured is a true story that explores the birth of modern UFO lore through the eyes of the first Americans to report that they were kidnapped by aliens. This is an exciting story that is as intriguing, timely and ripe for adaptation today as it was 54 years ago when this incident occurred. We look forward to sharing Betty and Barney Hill’s incredible encounter with audiences all around the world."
According to The Hollywood Reporter: "Bryce Zabel will write the script based on the 2007 non-fiction book 'Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience: The True Story of the World’s First Documented Alien Abduction' by nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman and Betty Hill's niece Kathleen Marden."
Hey, if a nuclear physicist says it happened, it must be true, right?
