Before American horror story brought the same cast over and over again for different stories of terror, That Sopranos creator David Chase wanted to do just that with the cast in the HBO series.
While speaking with Empire, David Chase revealed that he had an idea for a cruel police medium that would have had the entire cast of The sopranos in completely new roles.
One thing I wanted to do was a crooked police station show going on in Hoboken, New Jersey. Jim [James Gandolfini] was supposed to be this crooked lieutenant. The guys who played Paulie, Chris – all were supposed to be different characters, but the same types of people in the show on the other side of the law.
It certainly sounds like it could have been interesting, but I can imagine that James Gandolfini’s tragic death in 2013 put an end to the project. Although David Chase clearly did not go through with the series, he returns to the world of The sopranos with The many Saints in Newark, a prequel film that will be played in the era of the Newark riots of the 60s. It was a time when African Americans and Italians in Newark were at each other’s throats, and among the gangsters in each group, these conflicts became particularly deadly.
Although it took some time The many Saints in Newark In fact, the idea of a prequel to The Sopranos first came up in the series’ second season, then Oz creator Tom Fontana told David Chase that “it would be interesting to see Junior and Johnny in their younger days in Newark.“Chase said he”responded positively to it because my mother was born in Newark. She met my father in Newark. There was a personal connection and I loved those characters.” The many Saints in Newark is currently set to hit theaters and HBO Max on October 1, 2021.
