The ‘Sopranos’ Prequel Movie Will Feature a Young Tony Soprano

10 January, 2019, 20:09 | Author: Cecil Buchanan

On the surface, it seems like Chase reveals that he considers The Sopranos' final scene to be "a death scene", which would indicate that - as many people have theorized - Tony caught a bullet after that famous cut to black.

Alessandro Nivola talked to The Associated Press about the project on the red carpet Wednesday before a panel discussion led by creator David Chase to celebrate the 20th anniversary of "The Sopranos" in NY.

Here's what else Chase added (pulled from my own personal copy of The Sopranos Sessions): "If you were producing that [tunnel scene], you'd say, 'Well, obviously he's a gangster, and his death means the end of the show, so he should die". But before we get to the pull-quote that's got everyone arching their eyebrows, I'd like to go on record with the following opinion: the ending of The Sopranos can not be "solved", should not be "solved", and was pretty much designed from the ground up to be open to interpretation.

"I'm still very anxious about it, but I became interested in Newark, where my parents came from, and where the riots took place...", he shared.

Christopher Moltisanti, who was played by Michael Imperioli in the series, was a protege of Tony Soprano, the New Jersey mob boss portrayed by James Gandolfini.

While networks air presidential addresses when the topic is of national importance, they're not required to do so. Seth Meyers , the host of " Late Night " on NBC, took a position about this on his show Monday night.


Now Chase has confirmed a young Tony will be part of the storyline. Think you'll pick up Zoller-Seitz and Sepinwall's book?

Production is set to begin later this year. "I was interested in Newark and life in Newark at that time", he told the publication.

"Yeah, I feel they're out there with shotguns, just waiting."

Sepinwall: When you said there was an end point, you don't mean Tony at Holsten's, you just meant, "I think I have two more years' worth of stories left in me". The mafia was very polished at that time, how they dressed and what they did. "These weren't guys who wore tracksuits, back then", he said. Veteran Sopranos director Alan Taylor will be helming the project, based on a script from Chase and Boardwalk Empire scribe Lawrence Konner. The Many Saints of Newark is set to begin production this year, with casting now underway.
