The Hurricane Heist (formerly Category 5), a disaster action thriller from director Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious), is heading to the EFM in Berlin.
The film follows a team of tech hackers who infiltrate a U.S. Mint facility on a small coastal town to steal $102M in cash, just as a disastrous Category 5 hurricane, the storm of the century, is about to strike and level it to the ground. The only other two people left in the town, a meteorologist and a female treasury agent, must survive the horrific storm while stopping the thieves from getting away with the heist of the century.
“Crossing a heist movie set amidst the intense action of a natural disaster was an idea to which I truly responded,” Cohen explained when initially announced. “It’s a chance for me to get back to my roots in doing the adrenaline-pumped action/special effects films I love to create.”
An international sales trailer has been discovered, thanks to Fabien M., that looks like Twister meets Hard Rain with the insanity of The Fast and the Furious.
