Bryan Cranston Drug Drama ‘Infiltrator’ Moved Up to July by Broad Green (EXCLUSIVE)

Broad Green Pictures has moved up the theatrical release of Bryan Cranston’s drug drama “The Infiltrator” by seven weeks to July 15, Variety has learned exclusively.

Broad Green bought “The Infiltrator” last year at Cannes.

Brad Furman directed the film, based on Robert Mazur’s autobiography of the same name. Ellen Brown Furman adapted the script.

The Infiltrator” also stars Diane Kruger, John Leguizamo, Benjamin Bratt, Yul Vazquez, Amy Ryan and Olympia Dukakis. Good Films’ Miriam Segal is producing.

Cranston portrays undercover U.S. Customs agent Robert Mazur, who became a pivotal player for drug lords in the 1980s after cleaning their dirty cash by trading on mob connections to become confidant to the international underworld, and the bankers who enabled them. The operation reeled in key players in a chain stretching all the way to Pablo Escobar, with arrests leading to the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International.

“The Infiltrator” is the second wide release to land on July 15 after Sony’s reboot of “Ghostbusters.”

Its previous release date had been Aug. 31 — the Wednesday before the Labor Day holiday weekend, which is usually one of the slowest moviegoing periods of the year.

Three-year-old Broad Green, founded by brothers Gabriel and Daniel Hammond, began releasing films last July. “A Walk in the Woods” has been its most successful film so far, having grossed $29 million domestically.
