It is fitting that James Gandolfini's final role is one concerning gangsters, robberies and bars. He will always be recognized for his perfect turn as Tony Soprano on HBOs "The Sopranos." The film is titled The Drop, formerly titled Animal Rescue (name of the short story it is based on), and revolves around organized crime and what appears to be an inside-job robbery at a bar, as well as a lost pit bull. The film is directed by Michaël R. Roskam, who directed Bullhead, and the screenplay is by Dennis Lehane, who also wrote the short story. The film also stars Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, John Ortiz and Bullhead star Matthias Schoenaerts. It looks solid, but you never know. The film will be released on September 19th. Gandolfini one more time. Enjoy.
