Creator David Chase Confirms No SOPRANOS Movie, Talks Potential Prequel on 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.

The series premiered on the premium cable network HBO on January 10, 1999, and ended its original run of six seasons and 86 episodes on June 10, 2007. The Sopranos was produced by HBO, Chase Films and Brad Grey Television. It was primarily filmed at Silvercup Studios, New York City and on location in New Jersey. The executive producers throughout the show's run were Chase, Brad Grey, Robin Green, Mitchell Burgess, Ilene S. Landress, Terence Winter, and Matthew Weiner.

The Sopranos has been called the greatest television series of all time. The series also won a multitude of awards, including twenty-one Emmys and five Golden Globes.

NOT FADE AWAY, starring Brad Garrett, James Gandolfini, Bella Heathcote, Christopher McDonald, Molly Price, Lisa Lampanell, John Magaro, Jack Huston and Will Brill, the musical drama is set in 1964 when the Rolling Stones appear on television and three best friends from the suburbs of New Jersey decide to form a rock band.

NOT FADE AWAY hits theaters in a limited release on December 21.
