"The Sopranos" is back.  Well, sort of.  "The Many Saints of Newark", directed by Alan Taylor, is set for release September 24 this year.  It is the prequel to the hit HBO series and stars the late James Gandolfini's son, Michael Gandolfini.

The 21-year-old Gandolfini studied hours of his dad's dialog prior to auditioning.

‘It was really hard to watch my dad. I recorded four hours of his monologues with Melfi and walked around New York with them constantly, constantly, constantly playing in my ear,’ he told Vanity Fair.

As a kid he never watched "The Sopranos".

‘My dad didn’t want me to see Tony Soprano – the violence, the angry, the mean. Of course I was on set and would visit him in his trailer, but I had never watched the show… I never knew Tony Soprano. I only knew my dad,’ he explained.

New Line Cinema obtained the rights to produce The Many Saints of Newark alongside HBO Films.  The film was initially scheduled for release this past September but  due to the COVID-19 pandemic, its release date was rescheduled to September 24, 2021.  It will also be shown as a month-long simultaneous release on the HBO Max streaming service.

The film is co-produced and written by "The Sopranos" creator David Chase and also stars Alessandro Nivola and Leslie Odom Jr.
