The Many Saints of Newark - The Sopranos Prequel Movie

Recommended Posts

I didn't even know it was happening! :o Currently in pre-production so will definitely take a while.

Michael Gandolfini, the son of the late James Gandolfini, will play the role of the young Tony Soprano. He joins Alessandro Nivola, Vera Farmiga, Jon Bernthal, Billy Magnussen and Corey Stoll in the ensemble drama that is set in the era of the ’60s Newark riots, when African Americans and Italians of that city were at each others throats. It was especially lethal among gangsters from each group. The story focuses on Dickie Moltisanti (Nivola), a mentor to young Tony as his own father, Johnny Boy, was grooming his son on a pathway to organized crime prominence. There are expected to be call-backs and shout-outs to numerous other series characters in the film, which is set in the earlier time period.

Yeah. Wow Bluewolf.

Sopranos and the west wing are (for me) the point where this current golden age of TV really first started to kick off

Saints of Newark???

 

The only saints I know of are Saints of Southampton.

The "many saints" in the title probably refers to Moltisanti :)

I started watching it and watched 1 episode. It's the next show i'm going to get into. Before Peaky Blinders and GoT come back on our screens.

Michael Gandolfini playing his Dad's character is a special one. If what i've read is true, he was the one who found his Dad after he'd had heart attack.

You missed out. Up until the likes of Power, Breaking Bad, Prison break(well the first 3 series) and Sons of Anarchy came about, it was my favourite series ever(the Wire being another good one), although it's hard to say now as there are so many top series out these days. It's the opposite with films though.

I've said before, but get onto Power.
