The Drop has been adapted to film and is the basis for the movie of the same title that is being released September 12th of this year by Fox Searchlight Pictures. Dennis Lehane wrote the screenplay for The Drop film which stars Tom Hardy and the late James Gandolfini. As expected Mr. Lehane will also introduce a unique screening of the The Drop film which opens in theaters nationwide the day prior.
The Drop – “Three days after Christmas, a lonely bartender looking for a reason to live rescues an abused puppy from a trash can and meets a damaged woman looking for something to believe in. As their relationship grows, they cross paths with the Chechen mafia; a man grown dangerous with age and thwarted hopes; two hapless stick-up artists; a very curious cop; and the original owner of the puppy, who wants his dog back. . . .”
In addition to having written several novels that were subsequently adapted to film, Dennis Lehane, has written multiple teleplays and serves as a creative consultant and writer for the HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. He formerly served as a staff writer for the award-winning HBO series The Wire. For his work on The Wire he received a WGA Award for “Best Dramatic Series” and an Edgar Award for “Best Television Feature/Mini-Series Teleplay.”
