Bryan Cranston is set to headline the undercover thriller The Infiltrator, based on Robert Mazur's autobiography of the same name.

The Infiltrator follows the true story of Robert Mazur, who worked as a federal customs and excise agent loving the high life of Colombia's most powerful cartels while using his undercover alias "Bob Musella". He managed to record damning evidence that resulted in a major takedown at a staged wedding.

Working under 'Operation C-Chase', his target was bankers who manipulated complex international finance systems in order to launder money for drug lords like Pablo Escobar. His retrieved evidence proved critical in the conviction of General Manuel Noriega.
