Good Films announced today that principal photography on Ellen Brown Furman's adaptation of The Infiltrator is underway in London, before production moves to Florida at the end of April.

Set amidst the lavish excess of the 1980s, The Infiltrator tells the story of Robert Mazur AKA Robert Musella, who became a pivotal player for drug lords cleaning their dirty cash. He traded on mob connections to become the confidant to scores of the international underworld, and the bankers who enabled them.   Laying his life on the line, he infiltrated the globe's largest cartels and discovered just how deep into society their influence extended.  Based on the true story of a fearless undercover agent, The Infiltrator is a heart-stopping account of one of history's most elaborate stings. The operation reeled in key players in a chain stretching all the way to Escobar. Their arrests would lead to the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, and shake the black economy to its core.

First Look at Bryan Cranston in ‘Trumbo’

Following his epic five-season turn as drug kingpin Walter White on AMC's Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston takes on a whole new industry and time period in the first photo from the biopic Trumbo.

Bryan Cranston portrays Dalton Trumbo, one of Hollywood's most successful screenwriters in the 1940s, whose career came screeching to a halt after he refused to testify in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1947, at the height of the Cold War. This biopic, directed by Jay Roach, shows how he took a stand against Sen. Joseph McCarthy's Communist witch hunt. This resulted in him being blacklisted from the Hollywood studio system, while also serving an 11-month prison sentence for contempt and clashing with anti-Communist gossip columnist Hedda Hopper (Helen Mirren).

Helen Mirren Joins Bryan Cranston in ‘Trumbo’

Helen Mirren is in negotiations to join Bryan Cranston in the upcoming biopic Trumbo, based on the life of Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo.

The writer was considered to be the best of his era, not to mention the highest-paid, who earned his first Oscar nomination in 1941 for writing Kitty Foyle. His burgeoning career seemingly came to a halt in 1947, when he refused to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), during the committee's investigation into Communist influences in Hollywood. He was one of the "Hollywood 10" screenwriters who were completely blacklisted by the studio system, although he continued to write under pen names. He won two Oscars in the 1950s for writing Roman Holiday and The Brave One, before helping to put an end to the Hollywood 10 black list once and for all. He went on to write other classics such as Spartacus, Papillon and Exodus before dying of lung cancer in 1976.
