Netflix released the trailer for the dark comedy, which is adapted from Jake Bernstein’s non-fiction book “Secrecy World. The film follows a group of journalists who uncover the shady money networks at the heart of the Panama Papers — leaked documents that exposed a huge international system of legal swindling.
The script is by Scott Z. Burns, who also wrote "The Informant!" And the tone of the trailer indicates that "The Laundromat" is more in line with the zany energy of that film than the serious subject matter would indicate.
The cast also includes Jeffrey Wright, Sharon Stone, Melissa Rauch, Robert Patrick, and David Schwimmer.
"The Laundromat" will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival. It will open in select theaters September 27, then launch on Netflix on October 18.
