Having worked together on The Lincoln Lawyer, Bryan Cranston and director Brad Furman are reuniting, this time with Cranston snatching a lead role. He’s locked in to tackle** The Infiltrator{ =nofollow}.

Adapted by Ellen Brown Furman from customs and excise agent Robert Mazur’s autobiography, Cranston will be Mazur, who must investigate dodgy dealings by going undercover as a man named Bob Musella.

“Brad and I have invested a great deal of time ensuring that the casting on this film is absolutely perfect, and we feel we’ve done just that," said Good Film boss Miriam Segal in a statement. "Bryan’s talent is immeasurable, and he continues to demonstrate his versatility and skill as an actor. The Infiltrator is a film that demands a dynamic and complex leading man, and we could not be more excited to have him on board.”

Furman, who last made the forgettable gambling drama Runner Runner, will hopefully see a return to Lincoln Lawyer form for this one. He’s set to kick off shooting in January, travelling to London, Paris and Florida.

As for Cranston, he’s working on the drama **Trumbo **about Blacklisted writer Dalton Trumbo and has contributed a voice to Kung Fu Panda 3 for DreamWorks Animation.
