Fox Searchlight has released the theatrical trailer for “The Drop”, starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and James Gandolfini in his final film. Directed by “Bullhead” filmmaker Michael Roskam, “The Drop” follows an ex-con trying to go straight, working a legit job in a bar, whose life gets upended by a robbery gone wrong. It’s potent stuff, particularly for this Brooklyn-set tale, and Roskam knew he had a great duo in Hardy and Gandolfini, according to a recent article by USA Today. “I could see there was a bit of a smile between them. It was like, ‘We’re going to nail this, right?’ ” Roskam said of the production. “And they did this intense scene and were just spot on. There was a beautiful connection between those two guys.” You can watch the trailer in the video archive, screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.

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.’

The Playlist has sat down with Noomi in Marrakech for an amazing interview in which she dishes on all of her new projects – including “Child 44” and “Animal Rescue” – and confirming “Alive Alone” and “What Happened to Monday”. Make sure to read the complete interview over at The Playlist.

On Child 44:

We did “Animal Rescue” and I love working with him. We know each other … sometimes you meet someone and you feel like you can go anywhere—step into different characters and time zones or a period film or contemporary or whatever—we have a very intimate [relationship] and trust each other a lot. But we have a lot of fun even if it’s quite dark or heavy, we’re always laughing a lot and having a good time, so I love working with him and he’s such an incredible actor, I’ve been really lucky. And Gary Oldman is in it, who is one of my heroes, and Ridley Scott produced so he’s in the background and Daniel Espinosa who is from Chile but grew up in Sweden he is directing it. He did “Safe House,” and “Snabba Cash” and he’s also a friend of mine. So it was a long shoot and quite a big epic movie in one way, but very much a character drama, also some kind of reverse love story between my character and Tom’s character: they’ve been married for eight years when the movie starts and it’s like a cold war between them.

On Animal Rescue:

I loved [his previous film] “Bullhead.” I saw it and was blown away and I called my team “I want to work with this guy!” Then I read “Animal Rescue” before he was even on board, and I was meeting with Fox Searchlight, we kept a dialogue going, and then when I heard Roskam was doing it, I wanted to do it. I think he’s very passionate, and intense and very well prepared, he knows what he wants and is very focused, very much an actor’s director. There’s actually a scene that’s not in the script, I came to him and said I think we need this scene, between me and Matthias, that tells more about the two of them, that they have a history together that you never really saw. We did it, like four takes and when I met them in L.A., they said it’s one of the best scenes, so he’s very open. I definitely think we will work together again.

On Alive Alone:

It’s actually one of the most beautiful scripts I’ve read, it’s a fantastic love story. I would say if you take “Taxi Driver” and “Leaving Las Vegas” and throw them together … It’s an intense story between my character who is a heroin addict and prostitute in New York and Matthias Schoenaerts, he is playing the other lead. We worked together on “Animal Rescue” and we really connected but we only had two scenes together. We felt straight away that we wanted to work together again, and he gave me the script and I read it and I thought it was amazing.

On What Happened to Monday:

Yeah I’m doing that, maybe it’s a big mistake! I will play seven twin sisters. I just came back from meeting with one of the producers in Paris and next week I’m in London to work with the director [Tommy Wirkola] on the script. It’s a Black List script, and was written for a man.
