Fox Searchlight has set a release date for “Animal Rescue” – September 19, 2014. But not only that, the film has changed its title to “The Drop”. The film stars Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts, James Gandolfini, John Ortiz and James Frecheville. “The Drop” focuses on a man (Tom Hardy) who wants to shed his criminal path but somehow gets mixed up in a bad heist and a killing resulting from a lost and contested pit bull. Rapace will play Nadia, a woman who crosses paths with the protagonist when he finds a wounded puppy outside her home. Author Dennis Lehane adapted the film from his own short story that first appeared in ‘Boston Noir.’ Previous Lehane movie adaptations include ‘Mystic River,’ ‘Shutter Island’ and ‘Gone Baby Gone.’
