Set in the 80s, “The Infiltrator” is already shooting in London with a cast including Diane Kruger, John Leguizamo, Benjamin Bratt, Elena Anaya, Olympia Dukakis, Juliet Aubrey and Amy Ryan. The Good Films production moves to Florida at the end of April.
Produced by Good Films’ Miriam Segal, who founded the company in August 2011 with Martin Rushton-Turner as its keystone investor, “The Infiltrator” is the company’s first production. It is co-financed by Bank Leumi, Good Films and LipSync, with Relativity International handling foreign sales.
Cranston stays within a drug milieu as real-life undercover agent Robert Mazur (AKA Robert Musella), who found out just how far the drug lords influence penetrated society by laundering their dirty cash, trading on his mob connections to become the trusted confidant to many players in the international underworld as well as the bankers who enabled them.
Mazur reeled in key players in a chain stretching all the way to Colombian cocaine trafficker Pablo Escobar; these arrests destabilized the black economy and lead to the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International.
