Todd Wagner and Mark Cuban's 2929 Prods. has set Alex Holmes to write The Infiltrator, a drama about a Customs official who helped uncover a massive money laundering scheme that involved Pablo Escobar, according to Variety.
The production company has optioned "The Infiltrator: My Secret Life Inside the Dirty Banks Behind Pablo Escobar's Medellin Cartel," a memoir by Robert Mazur to be published by Arcade in April.
Holmes' adaptation will focus on Mazur's transformation from a married accountant to an undercover operative who hobnobbed with unsavory figures and brought down several major banks that were laundering tens of millions of dollars for Escobar as well as Panamanian strongman Manuel Noriega, Al Qaeda and the Taliban.
Mazur, who served as a senior special agent with three federal agencies -- U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the IRS and the Drug Enforcement Agency -- now runs the forensic investigative firm Chase and Associates.
No production date has been set.
