Director Brad Furman’s “The Infiltrator,” starring Bryan Cranston as undercover U.S. Customs agent Robert Mazur, who infiltrated major drug cartels—including Pablo Escobar’s—in the 1980s, will hit theaters August 31, 2016. (The film also co-stars Diane Kruger, John Leguizamo, Benjamin Bratt, Yul Vazquez, and Amy Ryan.) It’s one of three titles distributor Broad Green added to its 2016 calendar today.
The others are “Last Days in the Desert” (May 13), from “Albert Nobbs” director Rodrigo Garcia, which stars Ewan McGregor as both Jesus and the Devil (yep, you read that right) in a struggle over the fate of an ordinary family; and writer/director James Napier Robertson’s “The Dark Horse” (Apr. 1) a biopic of chess champion Genesis Potini.
The trio of new films comes as Broad Green continues to build up its offerings. In addition to handling Malick’s increasingly prolific output, the company’s recent and upcoming specialty releases include “99 Homes,” “A Walk in the Woods,” “Brain on Fire,” and “I Smile Back.”
