I literally forgot about this movie and now that we have official word that it’s finally coming out, I vaguely recall posting a trailer for it a long time ago. Vertical Entertainment is releasing Joel Kinnaman’s long delayed thriller The Informer this November on PVOD. A new trailer has been released for the film ahead of its release and you can check out Kinnaman getting all bad ass below!
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.
Directed by Andrea Di Stefano (Escobar: Paradise Lost), the film was supposed to hit back in 2018 but was shelved indefinitely due to distributor financial issues but it will now see the light of day. The film will be available on Digital and VOD with a price tag of $19.99.
Also starring with Kinnaman are Rosamund Pike (A Private War), Oscar-nominated actor Clive Owen (The Knick), Grammy winner Common (The Hate U Give), and Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049).
The Informer will release on November 6th so check out the new footage below!
