Diane Kruger has signed on to play the female lead in Good Films' The Infiltrator, alongside Bryan Cranston. We first reported on this project back in October, when Bryan Cranston signed on to star. No details were given for Diane Kruger's character at this time
The film is based on the true story of Robert Mazur (Bryan Cranston), 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.
Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer, Runner, Runner) is set to direct from an adapted screenplay by Ellen Brown Furman. Good Films' Miriam Segal is producing, with principal photography slated to begin in the very near future. Production is scheduled to take place in London, Paris and Florida.
Diane Kruger most recently starred in The Host, Mr. Nobody and The Better Angels. She will next be seen in This Man, This Woman. She also starred in the FX series The Bridge, which ended its two-season run last year.
