Heisenberg takes on Pablo Escobar! If you ever needed a line to sell your movie this is it. In The Infiltrator we see Bryan Cranston, known best for his role as Walter White in AMC’s Breaking Bad, as a seasoned undercover U.S. Customs agent who goes in deep as he infiltrates the American branch of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar’s criminal empire.
The movie is based on – or inspired by – true events in the life of Robert Mazur, who “spent five years undercover infiltrating the criminal hierarchy of Colombia’s drug cartels,” according to his website. “The dirty bankers and businessmen he befriended—some of whom still shape power across the globe—knew him as Bob Musella, a wealthy, mob-connected big shot living the good life.”
The movie is scheduled for release this summer. It is directed by Brad Furman, who is also attached to Scarpa starring Sylvester Stallone as Colombo family capo Gregory Scarpa. Besides Cranston The Infiltrator features John Leguizamo as his undercover partner, Benjamin Bratt as Escobar’s man in the United States, Diane Kruger, and Amy Ryan to name a few.
