Fox Searchlight Pictures has debuted the trailer for Michael R. Roskam’s The Drop, which marks, unfortunately, the final film from the late James Gandolfini. He stars opposite Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts, John Ortiz, Ann Dowd and James Frecheville in the crime drama. Check out the video in the player below, courtesy of iTunes Trailers.
Formerly titled Animal Rescue, The Drop takes an inside look at organized crime’s use of local New York City bars as money-laundering “drops.” When lonely Brooklyn bartender Bob Saginowski (Hardy) uncovers a drop of a different sort in the form of a battered pit bull puppy that he rescues from certain death, he comes into contact with Nadia (Rapace), a mysterious woman hiding a dark past.
Directed by Michael R. Roskam with a screenplay by Dennis Lehane, The Drop hits the big screen September 19.
