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
