Pit Bull Puppy Stars in New Movie

Pit Bulls are also making news in Hollywood. Three adorable Pit Bull puppies share the starring role of Rocco in “ The Drop,” which opens today. In the crime thriller written by Dennis Lehane, the hero, Bob Saginowski, is a Brooklyn bartender who rescues a puppy he finds in a trashcan. “Somehow caring for this animal and loving him and having him love him back is the beginning of his transformation,” explains producer Jenno Topping in a video feature about the movie on YouTube. “Our filmmaker felt very strongly that there was a thematic connection between a breed that was so traditionally misunderstood and our main character who is both enigmatic and hugely misunderstood.” The film also features the late actor and animal advocate James Gandolfini. — Watch it at YouTube
