“The Fast and the Furious” and “Alex Cross” director Rob Cohen is set to helm the disaster action thriller “Category 5”. Casting is currently underway ahead of filming this spring and summer.
The story follows a group of tech hackers who infiltrate a U.S. Mint facility on a small coastal town to steal $102 million, doing so just before a disastrous Category 5 hurricane hits the area and wipes out any trace of their crime.
The only two people left in the town, a meteorologist and a treasury agent, must survive the storm while stopping the thieves from getting away with the heist of the century.
Karen Baldwin, Michael Tadross Jr. and Danny Roth will produce.
