The Sopranos creator to revive hit crime drama with new prequel movie

Deadline.com is reporting that creator and showrunner David Chase has sold a script to New Line - the Warner Bros. unit that produced the Lord of the Rings trilogy - and that it has a working title: The Many Saints of Newark. While I don't necessarily think The Sopranos needs revisiting (it's the greatest TV show of all time, full-stop), I'm definitely down to see what Chase has to say here.

The Newark riots represented a dark time in American history, as the African-American and Italian communities in New Jersey were locked in heated conflicts with one another.

The script was written by Chase and Lawrence Konner, the prolific screen and television writer whose credits include The Sopranos.

Though information about the plot is limited at this time, the Sopranos prequel will reportedly feature some characters from the show such as Uncle Junior, Giovanni "Johnny Boy" Soprano (Tony Soprano's father) who founded the family empire and a younger version of Giovanni's wife Livia.

Broadcast between 1999 and 2007 on the USA cable network HBO, The Sopranos marked, in the view of experts, the beginning of a golden age for television series with its dark humour and complex characters.

Chase will serve as producer and co-writer. It put HBO on the map, established the market for DVD sales of popular series, and won 21 Primetime Emmy Awards, five Golden Globe Awards, and Peabody Awards for its first two seasons.
