THE INFILTRATOR is an upcoming crime drama film directed by Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) and written by Ellen Brown Furman, based on the autobiography of the same name by Robert Mazur, a federal customs and excise agent. The film stars Bryan Cranston, Diane Kruger, Benjamin Bratt, John Leguizamo, and Amy Ryan.
Based on a true story, Federal agent Robert “Bob” Mazur (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 (Leguizamo) and rookie agent posing as his fiancé Kathy Ertz (Kruger), Mazur befriends Escobar’s top lieutenant Roberto Alcaino (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.
