Prior to the late actor’s sleep-inducing death at age 67 in May 2022, the “Cocaine Bear” director came in to re-record some audio. They collaborated on what would end up being his final picture.

She told Entertainment Tonight: “He came in for ADR eight days before he passed away, actually, and he loved it.

“He was so happy. He was laughing. It was just delightful.”

The action horror comedy is partially based on events that occurred in 1985 and depicts the tale of a black bear who goes on a drug-fueled rampage after ingesting a duffel bag full of cocaine.

While a diverse collection of drug traffickers, tourists, and locals struggle to survive in the midst of the mayhem in rural Georgia, the death toll grows.

Although Liotta didn’t see the finished film, he did get to watch his own scenes and “saw the bear”, which was created entirely with CGI.

Elizabeth added: “He never saw the final movie, but he did see all of his scenes.

“And he saw the bear, which is the most important thing, because the poor guy like everyone had to act with, you know, a guy in a black suit and a stuntman and just sort of hope that it looks cool.”

The ‘Field of Dreams’ actor’s fiancée Jacy Nittolo paid a glowing tribute to the star following his passing.

Jacy – who got engaged to the movie star in December 2020 – wrote on the photo-sharing platform: “My life these past couple of years have been nothing but truly magical.

“Ray and I share a deep love that I will cherish in my heart forever. We laughed daily and we were inseparable. The chemistry was wild in the best way. He was everything in the world to me and we couldn’t get enough of each other.

“The kind of real love that one dreams of. He was the most beautiful person inside and out that I’ve ever known…and even that is an understatement. (sic)”
