A “Sopranos” Prequel Movie Is in the Works

It’s been 11 years since “The Sopranos” ended its run on HBO . . . while simultaneously reminding America of how awesome JOURNEY is.



Now, a MOVIE is in the works.  It’s a prequel . . . with the working title “The Many Saints of Newark”.  It was written by “Sopranos” creator David Chase, along with another writer from the show.



It’s set around the time of the Newark riots in the ’60s . . . when the African-Americans and Italians of New Jersey were at each other’s throats, and some gangsters took it to another level.



There’s no timeline yet, but it WILL feature younger versions of several characters from the show, like Tony Soprano’s parents.
