The late James Gandolfini’s concluding movie ‘The Drop’ is set to be released in US theaters late September – and the official trailer has now been released.
It opens with the movie’s back story, narrating: “In Brooklyn money changes hands all the time, but it’s not the kind of money you can deposit in the bank. But all that money needs to end up somewhere; they call it a drop bar. You just hide the entire city’s dirty money in plain sight.”
Gandolfini plays the man who runs the ‘drop bar’- Cousin Marv- and the trailer reveals that he used to be the owner of the place until the neighbourhood changed, and just “being tough” wasn’t enough to be feared and respected.
When the bar is victim of a robbery, Cousin Marv and Bob Saginowski (played by Tom Hardy) are forced to find the stolen money which belongs to Brooklyn’s meanest crooks.
The movie is written by the author of ‘Gone Baby Gone’, ‘Mystic River’ and ‘Shutter Island’- Dennis Lehane. It is the final movie Gandolfini starred in before his sudden death in June 2013, after suffering from a heart attack, aged just 51.
Gandolfini is, of course, most famous for his role in The Sopranos, where he played New Jersey based mafia boss Tony Soprano. As a result of the popularity of the hit TV show, ‘The Drop’ has been widely anticipated amongst Sopranos fans, who are desperate to catch the last glimpses of his acting career.
In fact his legacy stretches so far that in order to honour his life, New Jersey renamed a stretch of Park Avenue “James Gandolfini Way”.
