Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock) stars as John Matthews, a businessman hit hard when his teenage son is wrongfully ensnared in a drug bust and threatened with a terrifying 10-30 years in federal prison (under the US government’s draconian minimum drug sentencing laws). The only option to reduce the sentence is to “snitch.” A desperate Matthews makes a deal with the politically ambitious federal prosecutor (Susan Sarandon) and infiltrates the operation of a violent drug dealer (Michael K. Williams). When his amateur undercover work unexpectedly exposes a major player in the Mexican drug trade (Benjamin Bratt), the rules suddenly change and an already dangerous venture turns decidedly deadly.
The film was inspired by true events. Snitch is slated to open February 22, 2013.
