Rob Cohen To Chase Hurricanes For The New Disaster Heist Actioner, CATEGORY 5

Director Rob Cohen was once the hopeful to direct a few films in the past three years, including a remake of Road House now set to shoot this April and Fast 8 which starts later this year. Both are now in the care of different directors, but this also leaves Cohen available for something else waiting in the wings for a Spring/Summer shoot.

For this, we turn to Category 5 from representatives at Foresight Unlimited ahead of the European Film Market in Berlin next month. The film, to be helmed by Cohen, will center on a meteorologist and a female treasury agent as the only line of defense to act against a team of hackers out to rob a U.S. Mint facility in a small coastal town amid a Category 5 hurricane. Hence the title, and of course with a logline like this and considering how excellent Cohen pulled off The Fast And The Furious in 2001 and xXx in 2003 with actor Vin Diesel, a film like this would certainly suit Cohen.

"Crossing a heist movie set amidst the intense action of a natural disaster was an idea to which I truly responded." says Cohen. "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,"

The film will be produced by Karen Baldwin, Michael Tadross Jr., and Danny Roth with Howard Baldwin, Mark Damon, Bill Immerman and Tamara Birkemoe executive producing.
