Is Cocaine Bear based on a true story?
Announced in April 2022, Cocaine Bear raised eyebrows due to its incredible premise that is, in fact, inspired by real-life events.
The film is loosely based on the true story of a 175-pound American black bear
bear died after ingesting a duffel bag full of cocaine in December 1985.
The cocaine had been dropped out of an airplane piloted by Andrew C. Thornton II, a former narcotics officer
Thornton then jumped off the plane with a faulty parachute and died.
The bear was found three months later in the north of the state of Georgia alongside 40 opened plastic containers of cocaine.
The bear is currently on display at the Kentucky Fun Mall in Lexington, Kentucky.
Cocaine Bear will be released in cinemas on February 23, 2022.
The running time for the movie is yet to be released, or the age certificate of the film.
