"The details of this story are really extraordinary..." hmv.com talks to American Made director Doug Liman

Tom Cruise is no stranger to playing roguish but likeable mavericks and his latest starring role in Doug Liman's new film American Made is no exception. The film tells the story of Barry Seal, a former TWA airline pilot turned drug runner for Pablo Escobar's infamous Medellin Cartel in the 1980s, who then ended up working as an informant for the CIA.

Seal's involvement in a covert agency operation aimed at capturing Escobar and his crew ultimately led to the Iran-Contra scandal, in which Ronald Reagan's government covertly traded arms for U.S. hostages and funded the Nicaraguan 'Contras' in an attempt to topple the country's Sandinista government.

Cruise stars alongside a cast that includes Domhnall Gleeson, Parks and Recreation's Sarah Wright, Fargo's Jess Plemons and Ozark's Kevin L. Johnson, and with the film arriving on DVD shelve on Boxing Day, we sat down with director Doug Liman to talk about his new film.
