    The film's tentative tile "The Many Saint's of Newark" will focus on the tensions between italian citizens and african american's during the 1960's, and will feature many of David Chase's Soprano's characters including Johnny Boy Soprano, wife Livia, and a slew of others.

    Personally, I always felt a prequel series would have been preferable to a film, as you can flesh out the story more. But I'll take any additional Sopraon's lore that's given.

    Which Soprano's characters would you like to see show up?

    If it’s the 60’s than it should be Uncle Junior and Tony’s Dad. Tony would be a small kid. Possibly have Paulie and Big Pussy in it as they were in Tony’s Dad crew.

    There was a flashback in the Sopranos dealing w/ this. Young Tony dealing w/ the racial tension. Johnny Soprano also had a goomah that was also JFK's mistress

    Could be ok, could be utter garbage. Leaning towards garbage. Leave it alone, make a new gangster movie on its own if they have to.

    LOL that guy never worked again. Was he that good of an actor that people really hated him that much. I mean the guy is an actor. Doesn't mean he is that much of a whiny B in real life

    You already know what happens to most of the main character. It's kind of hard to make that story interesting. Better Cal Saul does a pretty good job at it though

    Should be about the War of the 80's. However seeing a 20 year old Paulie should be funny.
