Liam Neeson is described as the "G-man's G-man" in the first official trailer for "Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House."

Taking a break from his action hero persona, Neeson appears to be delivering a more nuanced performance as FBI Associate Director Mark Felt in this docudrama about the 1970s Watergate cover-up. Though it wouldn't be revealed for more than 30 years after the resignation of President Nixon, Felt was officially identified in 2005 as the Watergate whistleblower who the press notoriously dubbed as "Deep Throat."

The film takes a unique look at the famed political scandal that brought down Nixon as told from the perspective of Felt, a well-respected and feared FBI agent who was compelled to go against his own principles to leak vital information to a couple of Washington Post journalists named Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. Their story, of course, became the basis of the classic '70s film "All the President's Men."

Co-starring Diane Lane, Michael C. Hall, Josh Lucas, Tom Sizemore, Bruce Greenwood, Maika Monroe, Brian d'Arcy James, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ike Barinholtz, Noah Wyle, and Kate Walsh, "Mark Felt" is written and directed by former journalist-turned-filmmaker Peter Landesman (Concussion, Parkland) and was based on Felt's memoir "A G-Man's Life."

"Mark Felt" is due to open in theaters on September 29th.

synopsis:
"Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House" centers on "Deep Throat", the pseudonym given to the notorious whistle-blower for one of the greatest scandals of all time, Watergate. The true identity of the secret informant remained a mystery and source of much public curiosity and speculation for more than 30 years. That is until, in 2005, special agent Mark Felt shockingly revealed himself as the tipster. This unbelievable true story chronicles the personal and professional life of the brilliant and uncompromising Felt, who risked and ultimately sacrificed everything--his family, his career, his freedom--in the name of justice.
