raf-keunenRaf Keunen is reteaming with director Michael R. Roskam to score the upcoming crime thriller Animal Rescue. The film stars Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts, James Gandolfini and John Ortiz. The movie is based on a short story by Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone, Shutter Island) and follows a lonely Boston bartender who rescues a puppy from a garbage can and becomes the target of the dog’s abusive and mentally unstable former owner. Lehane has also written the screenplay and Peter Chernin & Dylan Clark (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Oblivion) are producing the project for Chernin Entertainment, alongside Mike Larocca. Keunen has previously collaborated with Roskam on his previous directorial effort Bullhead. Animal Rescue is currently in post-production and is expected to premiere in 2014. Fox Searchlight will release the thriller in the US.
