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. With director Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) at the helm, the cast includes Emmy, Golden Globe and Tony-Award-winning actor Bryan Cranston, Diane Kruger, John Leguizamo, Benjamin Bratt, Elena Anaya (THE SKIN I LIVE IN), Olympia Dukakis, Juliet Aubrey and Academy Award and Tony Award nominated Amy Ryan.
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.
Good Films' Founder and Producer Miriam Segal commented:
"With Bryan and Diane leading our incredible cast and Brad Furman directing, we have brought together the perfect team to bring Mazur's astonishing true story to the big screen."
Good Films' Co-Founder Martin Rushton-Turner added:
"As the first project from our exciting slate goes into principal photography, we are eagerly looking forward to delivering a great film!"
