Film fans are highly anticipating the upcoming movie The Drop, formerly called “Animal Rescue.” This will mark the final film appearance for the late James Gandolfini, who was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild award last year for Best Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for his work in Nicole Holofcener’s Enough Said.
Today, we have new images released for the film by Fox Searchlight Pictures. The source material was written by Dennis Lehane, who penned “Mystic River,” “Gone Baby Gone,” and “Shutter Island,” which all became very successful motion pictures. This also marks the English-language debut for director Michael R. Roskam, whose last film Bullhead received an Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Language Film.
The film stars Tom Hardy, the aforementioned Gandolfini, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Noomi Rapace.
The Drop is scheduled to be released on September 19.
