Alex Holmes Is Escobar’s “Infiltrator”

Alex Holmes (“House of Saddam”) is set to pen “The Infiltrator” for 2929 Productions reports Variety.

Based on a memoir by Robert Mazur, the true story follows the customs official who helped uncover a massive money laundering scheme that involved Pablo Escobar.

Holmes’ adaptation will focus on Mazur’s transformation from a married accountant to an undercover operative who hobnobbed with unsavory figures.

In the process he brought down several major banks that were laundering tens of millions of dollars for Escobar as well as Panamanian strongman Manuel Noriega, Al Qaeda and the Taliban.
