“Newark” is described as the prequel to the “Sopranos” and is being filmed as a full length feature film. If you are a Sopranos fan, don’t get too exited yet… Seems that the current date that “Newark” will be hitting theaters is in September of 2020, which gives us quite the wait.
“The Sopranos” prequel will actually hit theaters about 13 years after the original HBO show ended it’s run.
“The Sopranos” was set in New Jersey, where mob boss Tony Soprano, found himself in a bit of a mental breakdown which caused him to actually seek professional counseling. The show was created by David Chase, who is also involved in the upcoming movie, and also starred Lorraine Bracco and Edie Falco. The show ran from 1999 to 2007 with 2019 being the show’s 20 year anniversary.
As of now, the upcoming movie is titled “Newark” and according to Variety, “Newark” will star Alessandro Nivola, Vera Farmiga, Ray Liotta, Jon Bernthal, Corey Stoll, Billy Magnussen, and John Magaro. The Variety story also mentions that Michael Gandolfini, the son of “Sopranos” star James Gandolfini, is on-board and will actually play a younger Tony Soprano, a role made famous by his father, James Gandolfini. There is also a good chance that other characters from the “Sopranos” TV series may also appear in the upcoming movie.
According to reports, “Newark” is set in the late 60’s in… Newark, New Jersey and may focus on the Newark riots of 1967 which saw a feud between African Americans and Italian Americans turn into a blood bath which produced a body count of 26.
