MICHAEL GANDOLFINI : TIME FOR ANOTHER DOSE OF THE SOPRANOS

NOBODY is happier that Covid is winding down and movies are starting to be released again than Michael Gandolfini. Michael finished filming the prequel to The Sopranos, called The Many Saints of Newark, in June 2019 and has been waiting impatiently for a release date (and for his career to take off!) Michael, of course, plays his father James Gandolfini’s character as a teenager in the highly anticipated Saints move. It’s written and produced by David Chase who created the much beloved Sopranos, and we have MISSED that family! The trailer above, will whet your appetite…

RAY LIOTTA IS THE PERFECT GANGSTER

Ray Liotta’s got his hair slicked back and he’s ready to start work on The Many Saints of Newark. The prequel to The Sopranos takes place in the 1960’s in Newark when there was bad blood between African Americans and Italians. Liotta happened to grow up in Newark in the 60’s and he remembers. 27 of the cast members who appeared in Goodfellas with Liotta have been cast in the Newark film. Ray’s exact role has not been revealed, but James Gandolfini’s son Michael, 19, is playing Tony Soprano as a young man.
