This used to be called Animal Rescue, based on the short story of the same name by Dennis Lehane, but based on everything we’ve seen so far, The Drop is certainly a much more fitting title, if a little vague.
Tom Hardy runs a bar with James Gandolfini, though not too many know it’s actually a point of exchange for dirty money moving between criminals. The guys who rob it one night certainly don’t seem to know this, causing all sorts of problems when a lot of bad guys’ hard earned cash goes missing and Hardy’s caught in the middle of it all.
This certainly looks like it’ll be quite tension-filled, and Matthias Schoenaerts looks good as a bad guy. The Drop will be released on September 12 in the UK, while the UK gets it two months later on November 14.
