Believe It or Not, “Cocaine Bear” Is Loosely Based on Real-Life Events
“Cocaine” and “bear” are two words that couldn’t be more different from one another, and yet, together, they form the title of an upcoming horror-comedy directed by Elizabeth Banks. Surprisingly based on real events, “Cocaine Bear” centers on a black bear that ingests an exorbitant amount of cocaine and goes on a drug-induced killing rampage, harming anything and anyone that crosses his path in a small Tennessee town.
Along with the directing of Elizabeth Banks (known for “Pitch Perfect 2” and the 2019 reboot “Charlie’s Angels”), the film also features a strong cast, which includes Keri Russell, O’Shea Jackson Jr., and the late Ray Liotta. If you’re looking to sink your teeth into this gruesome and grisly flick, read on to find out all the details of “Cocaine Bear.”
