'Sopranos' Prequel Movie Will Feature a Young Tony Soprano

Since the film is set in the 1960s, it enables Chase and company to skirt around the tragic fact that James Gandolfini, who so famously played Tony, died in 2013.

Nivola said his character, Dickie Moltisani, will be "the central character", and that the title references the name Moltisani, which means "many saints" in Italian.

After almost 12 years of ambiguity surrounding the final scene of The Sopranos series finale, creator David Chase could have possibly shed light on Tony Soprano's ultimate fate.

I still quite haven't gotten used to the idea of a Sopranos prequel movie, but I'm curious to see how it all turns out.

Chase will produce The Many Saints of Newark and has written the script with The Sopranos writer Lawrence Konner. Alessandro Nivola has been cast as Dickie Moltisanti, father of The Sopranos' Christopher.

A young Junior Soprano will also be a character in the film.

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'. 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.

The man behind one of TV's all-time great mysteries may have finally spilled the beans about the fate of mob boss Tony Soprano, offering an illuminating comment on the infamous fade-to-black finale of "The Sopranos".

Edie Falco, Robert Iler and Jamie-Lynn Sigler attend the "The Sopranos" 20th Anniversary Panel Discussion at SVA Theater on January 09, 2019 in New York City. But Chase became more interested in the project as a way of looking back at his own personal history. "I started thinking about those events and organised crime, and I just got interested in mixing those two elements", he said.

Casting is now underway for The Many Saints of Newark, so we'll likely know who is playing young Tony, and other characters, soon.
