Diane Kruger has signed on to play the female lead in Good Films' The Infiltrator, alongside Bryan Cranston. We first reported on this project back in October, when Bryan Cranston signed on to star. No details were given for Diane Kruger's character at this time
The film is based on the true story of Robert Mazur (Bryan Cranston), a federal customs and excise agent who lived the high life of Colombia's most powerful cartels while using his undercover alias Bob Musella, all the while recording damning evidence that culminated in a major takedown at a staged wedding.
