Previously titled Animal Rescue, Michaël R. Roskam's crime thriller The Drop features James Gandolfini in his last film role.

James, best known for his role as Tony Soprano in HBO's The Sopranos died from a heart attack in June 2013 during a vacation in Rome. The Drop is his second posthumous film release after romantic comedy Enough Said, in which he starred opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

The Drop follows the lonely Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy), a bartender who gets himself tangled in the centre of a robbery gone wrong after he started doing money drops, helping to funnel cash to local gangsters. James plays Marv, Bob's employer.

Guns and shady bars get a new twist: puppies. Author and screenwriter Dennis Lehane has Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone, and Shutter Island in his screenwriting credits, so although we don't know yet how the adorable pit bull puppy contributes to the Bob's character development, we’re going to trust Dennis' instincts.

The Drop hits cinemas this 19 September 2014.
