Movie Was Previously Known As Three Seconds

Vertical Entertainment has released a new trailer for The Informer which stars Joel Kinnaman playing a snitch caught up in a drug war.

The Informer follows Kinnaman in the lead as a former Special Ops soldier who ends up in jail as an FBI informant. It also features a couple of other famous faces in supporting roles.

Here’s the trailer –

The lengthy synopsis for The Informer reads –

“Honorably discharged Special Ops soldier Pete Koslow’s (Joel Kinnaman) world is turned upside-down when he is jailed after a fight to protect his wife (Ana de Armas). He’s given a chance for early release by becoming an informant for the FBI (Academy Award nominees Rosamund Pike and Clive Owen) and using his covert skills in an operation to take down The General, the most powerful crime boss in New York. But when the FBI sting meant to finally earn Koslow his freedom results in the death of an undercover NYPD cop, Koslow finds himself caught in the crossfire between the mob and the FBI. The General insists Koslow takes the heat and sends him back to prison to spearhead a drug operation from inside, and the FBI affirms that going back to jail to do The General’s bidding is the only way for Koslow to keep his deal with them alive. Caught in a world of impossible choices, Koslow must return to prison, where he formulates a plan to escape the clutches of three of New York City’s most powerful organizations – the mob, the NYPD and the FBI – in order to save himself and his family.”

Based on the book Three Seconds by authors Anders Roslund and Börge Hellström, the film has been adapted for the screen by Matt Cook (Patriots Day) and is directed by the relatively unknown, Andrea Di Stefano.

The cast also includes Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049) Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl), Common (John Wick: Chapter 2) and Clive Owen (Children Of Men).

The Informer was set to hit theaters in August, but due to the pandemic, it will now be released on Digital platforms next month.
