Warner Bros. has released the trailer for director Steven Soderbergh’s (Oceans Eleven, ‘Twelve’ and ‘Thirteen’) dark comedy The Informant!. The film is based on the 2000 book from former New York Times journalist Kurt Eichenwald, and explores the true story of Mark Whitacre (Matt Damon), who in the early 1990’s blew the whistle on Archer Daniels Midland’s involvment in lysine price-fixing. (here’s the Wikipedia page on the 2000 book).
Scott Bakula, Joel McHale, Melanie Lynskey and Tony Hale co-star. As expected, it looks great! Check out the trailer after the jump.
The Informant hits theaters on October 9, 2009.
