The late James Gandolfini's son, Michael Gandolfini, is rumored to play a younger version of Tony Soprano, the character his dad won a Golden Globe for in 2000.

"The movie will deal with the tensions between the blacks and whites at the time, and Tony Soprano will be part of this, but as a kid", said David Chase (writer) in a previous interview.

Alessandro Nivola, Vera Farmiga, Ray Liotta, Jon Bernthal, Corey Stoll, Billy Magnussen, John Magaro, and Michael Gandolfini star in the film directed by Alan Taylor and written and produced by David Chase and Lawrence Konner.

The filmmakers are keeping quiet on details for the project and the roles, but it is known that some of the beloved characters from The Sopranos will appear in the film.

Production on "The Sopranos" prequel "Newark" is expected to start sometime in May with the release date now confirmed for next year.
