With Bryan Cranston and Diane Kruger already on board, the excellently-titled customs and excise drama **The Infiltrator **is lining up to be a return to form for director Brad Furman. Now the perennially underappreciated Benjamin Bratt (Law & Order) is on board, things are that extra little bit more exciting.

Having worked together on The Lincoln Lawyer, Bryan Cranston and Furman are reuniting, working on a piece adapted by Ellen Brown Furman from customs and excise agent Robert Mazur’s autobiography. Cranston will play the lead, Mazur, who must investigate dodgy dealings by going undercover as a man named Bob Musella. There’s no word on what part Kruger will be playing in the film, but she’s snatched the second lead role, while Bratt plays Roberto Alcanio, the agent’s contact who works with the likes of one Mr Pablo Escobar.

Furman, who last made the forgettable Justin Timberlake / Ben Affleck gambling drama Runner Runner, will hopefully see a significant lift in quality for this one, which is still shooting and is yet to receive a release date.
