The Infiltrator To Be Directed By Brad Furman
Bryan Cranston is going back to his “Breaking Bad” comfort zone exploring the underworld of drug cartels as The Infiltrator, to be directed by Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer).
The film is based on the true story of Robert Mazur, a federal customs and excise agent who lived the high life of Colombia’s most powerful cartels while using his undercover alias “Bob Musella,” all the while recording damning evidence that culminated in a major takedown at a staged wedding. His target under Operation C-Chase was bankers who manipulated complex international finance systems in order to launder money for drug lords like Pablo Escobar, and ultimately proved critical in the conviction of General Manuel Noriega.
Benjamin Bratt will be playing Roberto Alcanio, Cranston’s “direct contact” who works with the cartel’s “board members.”
The Infiltrator will hit theaters in 2016
