Cocaine Bear is an upcoming American thriller film directed and produced by Elizabeth Banks and written by Jimmy Warden. It stars Keri Russell, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Ray Liotta, Alden Ehrenreich, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Kristofer Hivju, Margo Martindale, Christian Convery, Brooklynn Prince, and Scott Seiss. It is inspired by the true story of an American black bear that ingested a duffel bag full of cocaine in 1985.

The film is inspired by the real story of a 175-pound American black bear that died after ingesting a duffel bag full of cocaine in December 1985. The cocaine was dropped out from an airplane piloted by Andrew C. Thornton II, a former narcotics officer and convicted drug smuggler, because his plane was carrying too heavy a load. Thornton would then jump off the plane with a faulty parachute and die. The bear was found three months later in northern Georgia alongside 40 opened plastic containers of cocaine.[3][4] The bear is currently on display at the Kentucky for Kentucky Fun Mall in Lexington, Kentucky.

POMTL!

I do find the display shameful, but Pablo Escobear...!






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

It’s funny when wild animals die due to irresponsible human behavior…right?

Is the film a comedy?

They refer to it as a "thriller", and say "inspired by the true story"

But in the movie it seems like the bear doesn't die from the cocaine.
