Criminal organizations have seen a lot of traction in digital media lately, from social media praising El Chapo during his arrest in January to Netflix’s Narcos series (which grew to become more popular than HBO’s Game of Thrones, according to Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos) about Pablo Escobar’s drug cartel.
Now Bryan Cranston stars in Broad Green Pictures’ The Infiltrator with a different take. The film follows federal agent Robert Mazur, played by Cranston, as he goes deep undercover to infiltrate Pablo Escobar’s drug trafficking business. The film also features John Leguizamo, Diane Kruger, and Benjamin Bratt.
The film is loosely based on the real Robert Mazur’s book and was shot in London. The Infiltrator hits theaters July 15.
