THE SOPRANOS, HBO
With the upcoming release of his first feature film, NOT FADE AWAY, SOPRANOS creator David Chase recently confirmed to Showbiz 411 that plans for a movie based upon his hit HBO show have been scrapped.
Though there are no plans for a feature film, Chase did mention that the idea of a prequel to the series has been thrown around at HBO recently.
"It would be with Tony's father, and Uncle Junior, and Livia-Tony's mother long before any of the other characters we know now."
THE SOPRANOS starred three-time Emmy winners James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano and Edie Falco as Tony's wife Carmela, plus Lorraine Bracco as therapist Dr. Jennifer Melfi, Emmy winner Michael Imperioli as Tony's nephew Christopher Moltisanti, and Dominic Chianese as Uncle Junior. Also on hand were series regulars Robert Iler as Anthony Soprano, Jr., Jamie-Lynn Sigler as Meadow Soprano, Tony Sirico as Paulie Walnuts, and Steven Van Zandt as Silvio Dante.
