If you’re in the right place at the right time you might spot a major Hollywood star in the Tampa Bay area during the next few days.
Bryan Cranston from “Breaking Bad” is shooting “The Infiltrator” throughout Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties. The movie shot Wednesday at Port Tampa Bay. Thursday the shoot will move to a beachside hotel in Pinellas County.
“We can’t really say where they’re going to be at because that’s one thing they like to avoid is too many fans showing up to get peaks of the actors,” Tony Armer with St. Petersburg Clearwater Film Commission said. “They’re actually shooting in London, and they’ve been shooting a lot of it in London primarily because of the great tax incentives that they have in the UK right now.”
The movie is based on a true story out of Tampa. It centers on U.S. customs agent Robert Mazur who infiltrated drug cartels, leading to the arrest of dozens of people.
“It’s going to be at least 100 people that are employed and a lot of those are all local and they’re not flying in everybody from London to work on this. You’re going to hire all local crew,” Armer said.
Cranston was spotted Tuesday night at a Ray’s game.
