‘Sopranos’ Prequel Is On the Way

It’s official: David Chase, creator of groundbreaking drama The Sopranos, has been teasing the possibility of a Sopranos movie since 2016, but now, we have something to actually sink our teeth into. New Line has announced it is developing a Sopranos prequel, titled The Many Saints of Newark, penned by Chase and the HBO series’ writer Lawrence Konner, Variety reports. Chase will also serve as producer on the film. Nicole Lambert will be an executive producer.

Some fan-favorite characters will appear in the movie, although a few will unfortunately not be able to appear. Notably, James Gandolfini, the star of the original series, died in 2013, and Frank Vincent, who played Phil Leotardo, died last year. Other actors who starred in the show and could conceivably make a comeback on the big screen include Edie Falco, Steven Van Zandt, Jamie‑Lynn Sigler, Lorraine Bracco, Michael Imperioli, Dominic Chianese, Steve Schirripa, and Tony Sirico.

  1. I'm guessing the only main characters from the series in the movie will be Johnny boy, Olivia, uncle June, & Paulie. Maybe Johnny Sacs & Feech la Manna will have a small part but I doubt it.

  2. So there never really never gonna let us know what happened in that diner, it seemed to me that the only one from the crew to survive was paulie walnuts and the irony of that is it’s his fault that tony got murdered because of the guy he tried to kill but let get away in the forest

  3. One of the best shows ever!!! The more you watch the show, the more you uncover and understand how genius it really is! I've watched the entire series 6 times currently on my 7th and still catch new things.
