Movie based on the Book
George Films Ltd, the U.K. based development and packaging arm of Good Films Ltd, has taken the movie rights of The Infiltrator into development. Brad Furman, the heralded director of The Lincoln Lawyer is attached to direct the movie. Furman's first film, The Take, starring John Leguizamo and Rosie Perez was nominated for a 2008 "Independent Spirit Award". His second film, The Lincoln Lawyer, starred Matthew McConaughey and was released worldwide in 2011.
Miriam Segal, the Producer and founder of George Films, started out as a director in theatre and radio. She joined BBC films in the mid 1990's. She has created and produced a number of high-end serials, which she brought to BBC 1. In 2007 she started Good Films. The company's first two projects, Good (2009) and The Great Ghost Rescue (2011), had budgets that were among the highest for independent U.K. films in their respective year's of production.
The Infiltrator is a chilling tale of greed and deception that blurs the line between the financial markets and the underworld. The story of this undercover operation is one of the most celebrated stings in world history. The staged wedding of Bob Musella (undercover federal agent Robert Mazur) brought top players from Colombia's mafia and their corrupt bankers to a trap, where their arrests shook the foundation of the drug world and ripped the mask off the world's 7th largest privately held bank, exposing its role as the gatekeeper of fortunes for corrupt world leaders and criminal empires around the world.
