Wicklow, and in particular Avoca and Powerscourt, will be heavily featured in the upcoming black comedy action film Cocaine Bear. The film was shot here, with locations in Wicklow standing in for southern US states.

Keri Russell, O'Shea Jackson Jr, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Matthew Rhys also feature.
