Trailer Released for Lehane’s The Drop

Sopranos star James Gandolfini, who died last June, stars in the Dennis Lehane-written The Drop, a feature film scheduled for release this coming September.

The source material is a Lehane short story called “Animal Rescue” which first appeared in Boston Noir (Askashic Books, 2009).

The official bumph says that 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.”

Since we’re big fans of both Gandolfini and Lehane around here, we can’t wait. The official trailer is below.
