Maybe a tree isn’t the safest place to hide from a bear. Check out this clip from Cocaine Bear, an upcoming dark comedy movie starring Keri Russell, O’Shea Jackson, Jr., Christian Convery-Jennings, Alden Ehrenreich, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Brooklynn Prince, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Kristofer Hivju, Hannah Hoekstra, and Aaron Holliday, Margo Martindale, and Ray Liotta.
Inspired by the 1985 true story of a drug runner’s plane crash, missing cocaine, and the black bear that ate it, this wild dark comedy 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.
Directed by Elizabeth Banks from a screenplay by Jimmy Warden, Cocaine Bear is produced by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller for Lord Miller, Elizabeth Banks, and Max Handelman for Brownstone Productions, Brian Duffield for Jurassic Party Productions and Aditya Soodfor Lord Miller. The film is executive produced by Robin Mulcahy Fisichella, Alison Small, and Nikki Baida.
Cocaine Bear opens in theaters on February 24, 2023.
