In The Informant
, award-winning investigative reporter and New York Times
best-selling author Kurt Eichenwald tells the outrageously true story of greed, corruption, and conspiracy that left the FBI and Justice Department counting on the cooperation of one man.
Now headed for the silver screen, the film adaptation of The Informant is directed by Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh, with Matt Damon set to portray Mark Whitacre, the executive who wore a wire for the FBI as they tried to bring down corporate giant Archer Daniels Midland - but whose dark secrets and hidden agenda threatened to unravel one of the largest price-fixing cases in history.
