Hold on, dear Sopranos' fans because the creators are back with yet another interesting film and this time it is supposedly the prequel to the famous movie "The Sopranos".
A lot has changed since "The Sopranos" wrapped in 2007: star James Gandolfini passed away, as did the actor who played his on-screen nemesis, Frank Vincent, and the real-life "Bada Bing!" strip club, Satin Dolls, closed in December. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly on the occasion of the finale's 10th anniversary, Chase did open that door ever so slightly: "I could conceive of maybe a prequel of 'The Sopranos", he told the magazine.
Broadcast between 1999 and 2007 on the US cable network HBO, "The Sopranos" marked, in the view of experts, the beginning of a golden age for television series with its dark humor and complex characters.
"David is a masterful storyteller and we, along with our colleagues at HBO, are thrilled that he has made a decision to revisit, and enlarge, the Soprano universe in a feature film", Warner Bros.
According to Deadline, David Chase announced the Italian gangster show would be returning in the form of a film. They do indicate that the era could see early explots if Tony Soprano's father, Giovanni "Johnny Boy", the former captain of the Soprano crew (Joseph Siravo), and a younger version of his wife Livia (Nancy Marchand), and Tony's uncle Junior, played by Dominic Chianese. With Chase involved we get a bit of reassurance that he'll guide the ship properly.
The series, which ran for six seasons with 86 episodes, was awarded 21 Emmy Awards and 5 Golden Globes.
