Marco Beltrami has taken over scoring duties on the upcoming crime thriller The Drop. The movie, which was previously entitled Animal Rescue, marks the English language feature debut of director Michael R. Roskam (Bullhead) and stars Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts, James Gandolfini and John Ortiz. The film 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. Dennis Lehane has written the screenplay based on his own short story (Mystic River, Shutter Island). Peter Chernin & Dylan Clark (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) are producing the project with Mike Larocca. Beltrami is replacing Raf Keunen who was previously scoring the film as reported last year. The Drop is set to be released on September 19, 2014 by Fox Searchlight.
