Bryan Cranston to Star in Thriller ‘The Infiltrator’

WME handling U.S. sales, Relativity Intl. looks after international

Bryan Cranston is attached to star in the first of Good Films’ slate of seven projects, “The Infiltrator.” Brad Furman (“The Lincoln Lawyer”) will direct.

Produced by Good Films’ founder, Miriam Segal, principal photography is scheduled to begin January 2015 on location in London, Paris and Florida. Relativity Intl. will present the project to distributors at the American Film Market.

Adapted for the screen by Ellen Brown Furman, “The Infiltrator” is an investigative-thriller based on author Robert Mazur’s autobiography of the same name. Cranston will play customs and excise agent Robert Mazur, and his undercover alias, Bob Musella. Cranston’s involvement in the film stems from a relationship that he developed with the director while shooting “The Lincoln Lawyer.”

Segal said the film “demands a dynamic and complex leading man.” Camela Galano, president, Relativity Intl. added the pic will deliver “edge-of-your-seat thrills.”

Martin Rushton-Turner, co-founder with Segal and senior financier of Good Films, said the slate of seven films, all developed by George Films, would fulfill what Good Films set out to do, which is to make “intelligent, quirky and original films with integrity.”

The company aims to bring “universally compelling stories to international audiences,” it said in a statement, adding, “Good Films is a discerning production house with a unique, smart and transparent business model.”

Its slate of films, which have budgets ranging from $12 million-$40 million, include best-selling author James Patterson (“Alex Cross”) and Liza Marklund’s “The Postcard Killings,” with Everado Gout (“Days Of Grace”) attached to direct. It is about to go into production.

Projects in development include playwright Tena Stivicic’s “Invisible”; author and journalist Peter Godwin’s “When a Crocodile Eats the Sun”; author Siri Hustvedt’s “What I Loved”; Rolling Stone reporter Randall Sullivan’s investigative book “Labyrinth”; and Ellen Brown Furman’s “52 Windows.”
