Good Films announced today that principal photography on The Infiltrator is now underway in London. Above, you can check out the first shot from the film, which features Emmy, Golden Globe and Tony-Award-winning actor Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad,” Godzilla) alongside Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds, The Bridge).
Also starring in the film are John Leguizamo (Chef, Kick-Ass 2), Benjamin Bratt (Love in the Time of Cholera, Traffic), Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In), Olympia Dukakis (Moonstruck, Steel Magnolias), Juliet Aubrey (The Constant Gardener, The White Queen) and Academy Award and Tony Award-nominated Amy Ryan (Birdman, Gone Baby Gone). The Infiltrator is scripted by Ellen Brown Furman and directed by Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer).
Set amidst the lavish excess of the 1980s, the film tells the story of Robert Mazur AKA Robert Musella, who became a pivotal player for drug lords cleaning their dirty cash. He traded on mob connections to become the confidant to scores of the international underworld, and the bankers who enabled them. Laying his life on the line, he infiltrated the globe’s largest cartels and discovered just how deep into society their influence extended.
Based on the true story of a fearless undercover agent, The Infiltrator offers an account of one of history’s most elaborate stings. The operation reeled in key players in a chain stretching all the way to Escobar. Their arrests would lead to the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, and shake the black economy to its core.
Produced by Good Films’ Miriam Segal, the picture is co-financed by Bank Leumi, Good Films and LipSync. Relativity International is handling foreign sales.
“With Bryan and Diane leading our incredible cast and Brad Furman directing, we have brought together the perfect team to bring Mazur’s astonishing true story to the big screen,” says Segal.
“As the first project from our exciting slate goes into principal photography, we are eagerly looking forward to delivering a great film!” adds Rushton-Turner.
The Infiltrator will continue to shoot in London before moving to Florida at the end of April.
