How cool is that? We’ve all been pretty excited for The Sopranos prequel since it was announced a couple years back and so it’s good to finally be getting some concrete details on it. Here’s the rest of the cast with some of the roles also clarified…
In fact according to reports filming on The Many Saints of Newark has wrapped up and the movie is scheduled for release later this year, so it’s quite amazing they’ve managed to keep so much under wraps until now. I mean imagine a Hollywood superstar like Ray Liotta being attached to such a massive movie for so long and no one even knowing what role he’ll be playing. It’s practically unheard of.
What’s even more surprising is that there’s not even a teaser trailer available, but no doubt it’s imminent. Surely there’s no way this movie can suck, right? I can’t think of many things that would be more disappointing than an underwhelming Sopranos prequel. Either way, we’ll always have the timeless original series.
