Cocaine Bear has left Twitter users in disbelief that its an actual movie coming out.
Yes, you heard that right — Cocaine Bear is an upcoming dark comedy that’s based on a very wild true story.
Set to release in theaters on February 24 in the US, UK and most of the world, Cocaine Bear is basically about a wild bear that goes on a drug-fueled rampage after eating a bag of cocaine.
Believe it or not, Cocaine Bear is a crazy retelling of the 1985 incident where an American black bear consumed more than 70 pounds of cocaine after the drugs had been dropped by a drug smugglers plane in a forest in Georgia, United States.
In fact, the medical examiner who performed the bear’s necropsy revealed to Ky For Ky the extreme damage the animal suffered after its binge.
„Its stomach was literally packed to the brim with cocaine. There isn’t a mammal on the planet that could survive that. Cerebral hemorrhaging, respiratory failure, hyperthermia, renal failure, heart failure, stroke. You name it, that bear had it.“
Now the taxidermied bear is on display at Kentucky Fun Mall in Lexington, making it an unlikely tourist attraction.
This particularly strange incident has now received the Hollywood treatment, with actress and director Elizabeth Banks directing Cocaine Bear and a star-studded cast featuring in the bizarre movie.
The late Goodfellas and Field of Dreams star Ray Liotta is in the movie and after his tragic passing in 2022, Cocaine Bear will be one of the last times that we get to see him on the big screen.
Other big names starring in the movie are Keri Russell (The Americans), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton), Christian Convery-Jennings (Sweet Tooth), Alden Ehrenreich (Solo: A Star Wars Story), Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family), Brooklyn Prince (The Florida Project) and more.
