Originally titled Hard Powder, this story of revenge is based upon the 2014 Norwegian black comedy In Order of Disappearance (Kraftidioten). Liam Neeson plays Nels Coxman, a snowplow driver whose son appears to have died of overdose. Nels will try to find the truth, looking for a drug lord called Viking, played by Tom Bateman (Murder on the Orient Express, Snatched). Viking's men will be disappearing one after another in strange circumstances at the hands of this badass vigilante. The main cast is completed by Laura Dern performing his wife (Big Little Lies, Twin Peaks), and Emmy Rossum is Kim, the local detective (Shameless, The Phantom of the Opera).

Although this production is set in Kehoe, Colorado, Cold Pursuit was filmed in the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia (Canada). Here is a spoiler-free report including some of the most interesting filming locations of the movie:

The great snowed outdoors pictured in the film are from the Kananaskis Valley in the Canadian Rockies. The graveyard is situated under the Fortress mountain (left) and Gusty Peak (on the right). The filmmakers had planned to shot in Banff National Park, but the direction of the park didn't liked the fact that one of the bad guys is an Indigenous gang boss, and the the filming permit was revoked.
