"The Drop" is a new crime drama from Michaël R. Roskam, the Academy Award nominated director of "Bullhead." Based on a screenplay from Dennis Lehane ("Mystic River," "Gone Baby Gone"), "The Drop" follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters – "money drops" – in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv (James Gandolfini), Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood’s past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living – no matter the cost.
