'The Sopranos' prequel star reveals details on upcoming movie 'The Many Saints of Newark' - Fox News

The star of the upcoming "The Sopranos" prequel says a young Tony Soprano will be a part of the film — but had good reason to be careful about how much else he revealed about "The Many Saints of Newark."

  (AP) The star of the upcoming "The Sopranos" prequel says a young Tony Soprano will be a part of the film — but had good reason to be careful about how much else he revealed about "The Many Saints of Newark."

  Alessandro Nivola talked to The Associated Press about the project on the red carpet Wednesday before a panel discussion led by creator David Chase to celebrate the 20th anniversary of "The Sopranos" in New York.

  TONY SOPRANO CHARACTER WILL APPEAR IN PREQUEL FILM 'THE MANY SAINTS OF NEWARK' Though the elder Moltisanti never appeared in the series, he is often mentioned as part of Christopher's backstory.

  The father was gunned down when Christopher was young and Nivola said the film will explore the interlocking history of Dickie Moltisanti and Soprano.

  'SOPRANOS' PREQUEL MOVIE IN THE WORKS FROM CREATOR DAVID CHASE, REPORT SAYS Nivola cited "weird coincidences" that told him this role was meant for him, including the fact that his real-life neighbor is Tim Van Patten, who directed many episodes of "The Sopranos."
