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.

This will be interesting cause the Sopranos was notorious for its terrible writing for non-white characters
Johnny boy soprano
I'd love to see the Feech Lamana days
Too many on the show have died
A dream coming true
tv show would be better.
Omg cant Wait!! Get ready to get ready to get out your fucking shineboxes guys.
All of Hollywood should show up to the movie and wait until,David Chase arrives then go home and strem it. See how he likes being left high and dry
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.
a show? good
a movie? shite
Sopranos. Greatest tv show ever.
I would love for them to find some way to bring back Edie Falco. I know she can't play Carmela.
The endin was the best
RIP James Gandolfini 🙏🏻
How is this a prequel to the sopranos????
YES FUCK YES FUCK FUCK
Its gonna be a buncha greaseballs callin balck people moolies….I'll pass.
Without james playing tony I don't care to see it.
It’s guna be terrible,I’m saying it now.James gandolfini was the sopranos and without him the show will be shit
the ending was perfect all the pieces of the puzzle are there
This series was the shit
This will be great.
Say what y'all want but everybody's watching that shit
white people don't age well, how they gonna do a prequel?
Whaaaaaa???!!! (won't be the same without Jim)
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
Anything Sopranos I'm Innnn🙌
Hell Fucking Yes! RIP James Gandolfini!
Still mad that Janice never got killed
they should probs hire someone else to write the ending of the movie… just sayin
Oh shit. I got my popcorn ready.
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.
COMPLEX IS LIKE DRAKE
I’m watching the sopranos right now, on season 2
LEAVE THE FUCKING CLASSICS ALONE !!!
