James Gandolfini on Rescue duty


Former “Sopranos” star James Gandolfini, seen in the new comedy release “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone”, is in talks to join Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace in Fox Searchlight’s “Animal Rescue”.

The movie, set to star Matthias Schoenaerts, “is based on the Dennis Lehane short story and follows a man who wants to shed his criminal past but somehow gets mixed up in a bad heist and a killing, resulting from a lost and contested pitbull” says Variety.

“Animal Rescue” will be helmed by “Bullhead” director Michael R. Roskam.
