May 05, 2023

Drew Pearce’s upcoming action thriller, Cooler, starring Dave Bautista, which we first told you about, is launching sales at the Cannes Market, we hear from sources.

FilmNation Entertainment’s newly formed production label Infrared won the package in a competitive bid back in September, and we understand that FilmNation will be handling international sales, while CAA Media Finance and FilmNation Entertainment are tending to U.S. sales.

In Cooler, South Beach bouncer Ray Sagona (Bautista) is on the brink of finding redemption and getting his family back. But when a drug-filled safe is stolen from the super club he works at, Ray is blackmailed into finding it before the Miami PD narcotics bureau comes to retrieve it on Sunday night. Now, as his past and present collide in ever-more dangerous ways, Ray must survive an epic 36-hour odyssey across Miami Beach to get that safe back… one final Herculean task on his journey towards absolution. Pearce is directing off the script he wrote, and he’s producing for his Point of No Return label.

Bautista and Jonathan Meisner are producing for Dogbone Entertainment, while Drake and Future the Prince are producing for DreamCrew. Drew Simon and Sam Speiser are producing for Infrared.
