They're both known for playing drug dealers - albeit one worked in New Mexico and the other worked in Dublin - but now it seems Tom Vaughn-Lawlor and Bryan Cranston are headed to the other side of the law.

Set in the height of the '80s cocaine craze, The Infiltrator follows FBI agents Bob Mazur (Cranston), Emir Abreu (John Leguizamo), Kathy Ertz (Diane Kruger) and Steve Cook (Tom Vaughn-Lawlor) as they take on the Colombian cartel and its top lieutenant in the United States.

In order to do this, Cranston, Leguizamo and Kruger must pose as international criminals and money-launderers in order to secure the trust of the Colombians. The story, as you can imagine, is so wild as to be factual and the eventual casework led to a total of 85 indictments and the collapse of one of the world's largest money-laundering bank, Bank Of Credit & Commerce International.

Directed by Brad Furman, who previously did Runner Runner (ugh) and The Lincoln Lawyer (pretty good, actually), The Infiltrator is set to hit US screens on July 15th with an Irish release date expected pretty shortly.

In the meantime, here's the trailer.
