OK, this is a bear’s brain on drugs.

The film–inspired by true events that took place in Kentucky back in 1985–bounds its way onto the big screen Feb. 24, 2023.
Directed by Elizabeth Banks (Charlie’s Angels) from a screenplay by Jimmy Warden, the feature follows a group of “cops, criminals, tourists and teens as they converge on a Georgia forest where a 500-pound black bear has eaten a staggering amount of cocaine (dropped by a drug smuggler) and has gone on a rampage for more drugs–and blood,” according to the synopsis.
The film–produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller–stars Keri Russell, Margo Martindale, Ray Liotta, Alden Ehrenreich, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Kristofer Hivju.
