David Chase, the creator and producer of the multiple Emmy® and Golden Globe® winning and critically acclaimed series The Sopranos, will reunite not with James Gandolfini but with musician, and Sopranos star, Steven Van Zandt. SVZ will produce and supervise the music, as well as serving as an Executive Producer, for the director's music-driven, coming-of-age story set in 1960's suburbia.
Chase, who is making his feature film directorial debut, simultaneously announced that actors John Magaro, Jack Huston and Will Brill will star in the movie, to be released by Paramount Vantage. Principal photography is set to begin this January in New York.
Said Chase in a statement: "It's exciting to be working with Brad Grey again, doing my first feature. I look back with pleasure on our last outing. I am also thrilled to be working with Steven again, especially on this particular subject. It's not just that we both worship the same songs and bands from the era----it's that he obviously knows so much. About every aspect. He embodies a particular spirit of a particular kind of rock and roll. He actually is that spirit."
Did you used to watch The Sopranos? I am from New Jersey and Italian, so what do you think my answer to that question is?
