A movie made about the Beltway sniper shootings that terrorized our region in 2002 opens today in New York City before coming to the District in two weeks.
The movie is called Blue Caprice, after the car that Beltway snipers John Allen Muhammad and his teenage partner Lee Boyd Malvo used to terrorize the metro D.C. area during three weeks in 2002.
Isaiah Washington plays the middle-aged Muhammad, while Tequan Richmond plays Malvo, the teenager who pulled the trigger on many of the 13 shootings that resulted in ten deaths.
The movie, directed by Alexander Moors, tries to capture the elusive and deadly bond between Mohammad, who was executed by lethal injection in 2009, and Malvo, who is serving six consecutive life sentences.
Blue Caprice opens today in New York in a very limited release, and it opens at the West End Theatre on Sept. 27.
