Before his death, Liotta completed a bear thriller, a limited web series

LOS ANGELES: Ray Liotta had several movies and a TV series in the works before his sudden death Thursday night at age 67, ‘Variety’ reports.

At least two projects, Universal’s drug-packed thriller “Cocaine Bear” and Apple TV Plus limited series “Black Bird,” had already wrapped production and are expected to be released on schedule, sources said.

Liotta died in his sleep while filming “Dangerous Waters” in the Dominican Republic. The indie film began production over a month ago, but it’s unclear where they were in terms of filming. John Barr directs ‘Dangerous Waters,’ a thriller about a sailing vacation spiraling out of control when a teenage girl discovers the dark past of her mother’s new boyfriend.

The film also stars “You” actor Saffron Burrows, Odeya Rush (“Lady Bird”) and Eric Dane from “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Euphoria.”

In “Black Bird,” which lands on Apple TV+ on July 8, Liotta plays a police officer whose son (played by Taron Egerton) is sentenced to 10 years in prison for drug trafficking. While serving his sentence, he is offered early parole on the condition that he be transferred to a felony insane prison and befriend serial killer Larry Hall (Paul Walter Hauser) .

It’s unclear who Liotta stars in “Cocaine Bear,” which wrapped filming in Ireland in October 2021. The Elizabeth Banks-directed film is in post-production and aims to debut in theaters on February 24, 2023.

“Cocaine Bear” is inspired by the true story of an American black bear who goes on a rampage after ingesting a staggering amount of beatings. Along with Liotta, the cast includes Keri Russell, Alden Ehrenreich, Margo Martindale and O’Shea Jackson Jr.
