Cannes: Bryan Cranston's 'The Infiltrator' Lands U.S. Home at Broad Green

The Brad Furman-directed film centers on a U.S. Customs official who uncovers a money-laundering scheme.

Broad Green Pictures has acquired the U.S. rights to the Bryan Cranston starrer The Infiltrator.

Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) is directing the film, which centers on a U.S. Customs official who uncovers a money-laundering scheme involving Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. Ellen Brown Furman wrote the screenplay, which is based on Robert Mazur’s autobiography of the same name. Cranston plays Customs and Excise Agent Mazur and his undercover alias, Bob Musella.

John Leguizamo, Diane Kruger and Amy Ryan co-star in the film, which began shooting in March in London and Florida.

WME brokered the deal, while Relativity International is selling the project to foreign buyers at the Cannes film market.

Good Films founder Miriam Segal produced the film, which was also packaged and developed by Good Films' sister development and packaging label, George Films. Don Sikorski also produced.

Cranston’s involvement in the film stems from a relationship he developed with the director while shooting Lincoln Lawyer.

“I’m thrilled to be partnering with Broad Green Pictures” Furman said in a statement. “This project was truly a labor of love for all involved, and I can’t wait for Broad Green, whose passion for film is unparalleled, to bring The Infiltrator to a wide audience.”
