Here’s the official plot synopsis of The Man Who Made It Snow, the upcoming biography crime thriller movie directed by Antoine Fuqua based on a script by Michael Kingston and Brett Tabor and starring Jake Gyllenhaal (pictured above) as Max Mermelstein, a notorious 1980s drug smuggler who pioneered the cocaine pipeline from Medellín to Miami before eventually turning rat and tearing it all down:
“From acclaimed action director; Antoine Fuqua, comes a gritty crime drama based on true accounts of Max Mermelstein (Jake Gyllenhaal), the only American to gain admittance into the inner circle of Pablo Escobar’s Colombian drug cartel. This incredible journey follows Max’s rise to become the cartel’s chief architect in smuggling over 50 tons of cocaine into America and his eventual role as one of the key witnesses for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency’s case to bring down Escobar and his crime ring. THE MAN WHO MADE IT SNOW cracks open the largest drug trafficking operation in U.S. history and injects us into the dark underbelly of the Colombian cartel.”
