A brand new behind-the-scenes featurette for Universal Pictures’ upcoming dark comedy horror movie Cocaine Bear has been revealed (via Rotten Tomatoes).
The new video features commentary from director Elizabeth Banks and some of the leading cast as they discuss the movie’s bizarre and scary premise, which involves a cocaine-fueled black bear.
Check out the new Cocaine Bear featurette below:
“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,” reads the official synopsis for the film.
The film is scheduled to arrive in theaters on February 24, pitting it against several independent films like Jesus Revolution and Ambush. It is also set to be released in the same month as other high-profile features, including Knock at the Cabin, 80 for Brady, Magic Mike’s Last Dance, and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Cocaine Bear is directed by Banks from a screenplay written by Jimmy Warden. The film stars Keri Russell, Brooklyn Prince, Alden Ehrenreich, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Margo Martindale, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Christian Convery-Jennings, Matthew Rhys, Isiah Whitlock Jr, Kristofer Hivju, Hannah Hoekstra, Ray Liotta, and Aaron Holliday.
