Let’s face it, Bryan Cranston taught us more about being a drug kingpin in Breaking Bad than we ever thought we could or should know. This time around he is on the other side of the law…or is he?
Based on a true story and Directed by Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer, Runner Runner), federal agent Robert “Bob” Mazur (Bryan 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 in The Infiltrator.
Teamed with impulsive and streetwise fellow agent Emir Abreu (John Leguizamo) and rookie agent posing as his fiancé Kathy Ertz (Diane Kruger), Mazur befriends Escobar’s top lieutenant Roberto Alcaino (Benjamin 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.
Check out our interviews with Cranston, Bratt, Leguizamo, and Kruger who share their fascination with the skill, deception, and courage it took the real life agents to pull off the largest money laundering stings in U.S. history and stay alive in the process. Also how they brought it all to life in the most anticipated film of the summer!
The Infiltrator opens in theatres nationwide July 13th.
