How Can You Not Look Forward To A Film Titled COCAINE BEAR

Great title, great cast, great director, and a great big bear – yeah, I’m in.

COCAINE BEAR is a thing – or more exactly, it will be a thing. Fan-favorite actress/director Elizabeth Banks is on board to bring us an “inspired by true events” flick that promises terror, bloodshed, and a bear high on cocaine. Deadline is offering up the following synopsis – and it’s pretty epic.

“The movie finds an oddball group of cops, criminals, tourists, and teens converging in a Georgia forest where a 500- pound apex predator has ingested a staggering amount of cocaine and gone on a coke-fueled rampage for more blow … and blood.”

Check out the already on-board announced cast – Keri Russell, Ray Liotta, Alden Ehrenreich, O’Shea Jackson, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson. Also of note is the fact that Brian Duffield is producing – he’s the man behind UNDERWATER and SPONTANEOUS – two amazing films so, let’s let this dude shoot up a grizzly and see what happens! With Elizabeth behind the camera, we already know it’s gonna be good.

The film has a release date – the rampaging will commence on Feb. 24th, 2023. Can’t wait to see a trailer for this one. More info as it lumbers in.
