Watch: First Trailer For 'The Drop' Starring Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini, Noomi Rapace & Matthias Schoenaerts

“Tom was intensely inquisitive,” screenwriter Dennis Lehane told USA Today about Tom Hardy‘s turn. “He mined every single piece of marrow out of that character.” And those are encouraging words to hear about “The Drop,” the forthcoming film that brings together a helluva ensemble for a tale rich with possibility.

Co-starring the late James Gandolfini, Noomi Rapace and Matthias Schoenaerts, and directed by “Bullhead” filmmaker Michael Roskam, this one 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 Boston Brooklyn-set tale, and Roskam knew he had a great duo in Hardy and Gandolfini. “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.”

See that chemistry below in the first trailer for the film. Fox Searchlight will bring it to theaters on September 19th. Watch below.
