Bryan Cranston, Benjamin Bratt to walk red carpet for 'Infiltrator' screening at Tampa Theatre



Academy Award nominee Bryan Cranston returns to Tampa Bay on July 6 for an invitation-only screening of The Infiltrator, filmed locally in 2015.

Anyone who isn't among the VIPs scoring those invites will wait another week until The Infiltrator opens in theaters nationwide.

However, you may get a glimpse of Cranston, co-star Benjamin Bratt and director Brad Furman on the red carpet outside Tampa Theatre. The red carpet opens at 5 p.m., and the screening begins at 7:30.

The Infiltrator stars Cranston as Tampa resident and former U.S. Customs undercover agent Robert Mazur, who smashed a money laundering scheme, helping to bring down drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. Bratt plays one of the cartel's chieftains, duped by Mazur's investigation.

The Infiltrator filmed around Tampa Bay for two week in April and May last year, at nearly two dozen locations including Derby Lane greyhound racing track and the Don CeSar and Innisbrook resorts. Those locations figure prominently in the film's second trailer, available here.
