After playing Robocop and “Suicide Squad”’s Rick Flagg, Joel Kinnaman finds himself on the other side of the law in “The Informer,” the new film from Andrea Di Stefano (“Escobar: Paradise Lost”).
Aviron Pictures released the first trailer Friday from the upcoming thriller, which also stars Rosamund Pike (“A Private War”), Clive Owen (“Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets”), Ana de Armas (“Blade Runner 2049”) and Common (“The Hate U Give”). In the film, Kinnaman’s character Pete Koslow, a former Special Ops soldier, agrees to become an informant for the FBI in exchange for reduced prison time after getting into a violent altercation to protect his wife. But when the FBI sting he’s participating in results in the death of an undercover police officer, Koslow finds himself caught between the federal agents he’s working for, the mobsters he’s convinced he’s working with, and the cops who want to pin their colleague’s death on him.
Check out the trailer below:
Following his Hollywood breakthrough in “Robocop,” Kinnaman has quickly become one of the industry’s most versatile performers, shuffling between film and TV projects such as “House of Cards,” “Knight of Cups,” “Altered Carbon,” and the upcoming series “Hanna,” based on the 2011 film starring Saoirse Ronan.
The film was adapted from Borge Hallstrom and Anders Roslund’s novel of the same name by Matt Cook, who previously wrote “Triple 9” and “Patriots Day.” “The Informer” opens in theaters nationwide March 22, 2019.
