Cocaine Bear is written by Jimmy Warden and directed by Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect 2). Keri Russell, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Christian Convery, Alden Ehrenreich, Brooklynn Prince, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Margo Martindale and Ray Liotta star.

The film is inspired by the 1985 true story of a drug runner's plane crash, missing cocaine, and the black bear that ate it.

"This wild thriller 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," an official synopsis reads.

Cocaine Bear opened in theaters Feb. 24. The film was the No. 2 movie at the box office its opening weekend.

Russell will star in the Netflix series The Diplomat, which premieres April 20.
