Cohen Directing Heist Thriller ‘Category 5’

It looks like director Rob Cohen will return to his action roots with upcoming action/thriller ‘Category 5’.  Even better, it’s set to be a heist thriller.  The film will follow 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.
“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.

    Rob Cohen hasn’t made a decent film since the first xXx and Fast and Furious movies, he tried going back to action once with “Alex Cross” and that film sucked…

    I believe the man has lost it, unless this turns out to be an (unlikely) pleasant surprise.
