While its not a new Season of Breaking Bad, it is the legendary Bryan Cranston returning to the "drug world" except this time he appears to be on the other side of the "war" in The Infiltrator. The Academy award-nominated actor will be portraying Federal agent Robert Mazur in a story about him going undercover as a money launderer for over five years during the 80s. Based a true story, real life undercover agent Robert Mazur actually wrote about this part of his life in the Novel "The Infiltrator: My Secret Life Inside the Dirty Banks Behind Pablo Escobar's Medellin Cartel".
The film is directed by Brad Furman, and also stars John Leguizamo, Diane Kruger, Joseph Gilgun, Amy Ryan, and Benjamin Bratt. Check out the cool trailer below and then sound off in the comments with your thoughts on the upcoming film.
Here's the official synopsis:
"Based on a true story, Federal agent ROBERT “BOB” MAZUR (Bryan Cranston) goes deep undercover to infiltrate Pablo Escobar’s drug trafficking scene plaguing the nation in 1986 by posing as slick, money-laundering businessman Bob Musella. Teamed with impulsive and streetwise fellow agent EMIR ABREU (John Leguizamo) and rookie agent posing as his fiancé KATHY ERTZ (Diane Kruger), Mazur befriends Escobar’s top lieutenant ROBERTO ALCAINO (Benjamin Bratt). Navigating a vicious criminal network in which the slightest slip-up could cost him his life, Mazur risks it all building a case that leads to indictments of 85 drug lords and the corrupt bankers who cleaned their dirty money, along with the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, one of the largest money-laundering banks in the world."
The Infiltrator is set to hit theaters on July 15th.
