‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Godzilla’ star Bryan Cranston and his ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ helmer Brad Furman are set to reteam for the “investigative-thriller” ‘The Infiltrator,’ says Variety.
Penned by Ellen Brown Furman, the film is based on Robert Mazur’s autobiography of the same name. Cranston will be playing Mazur, a customs and excise agent who, under the alias Bob Musella, spent five years undercover as a money launderer to the international underworld, gaining access to the zenith of a criminal hierarchy. In the process, Mazur gathered damning evidence that helped bring down the unscrupulous bankers who manipulated complex international finance systems to serve drug lords—including Pablo Escobar—corrupt politicians, tax cheats, and terrorists.
Filming is scheduled to get underway early next year on location in London, Paris and Florida. Miriam Segal of U.K production shingle Good Films is on board to produce.
“Brad and I have invested a great deal of time ensuring that the casting on this film is absolutely perfect, and we feel we’ve done just that,” said Segal in a statement. “Bryan’s talent is immeasurable, and he continues to demonstrate his versatility and skill as an actor. ‘The Infiltrator’ is a film that demands a dynamic and complex leading man, and we could not be more excited to have him on board.”
