Warner Bros Dates ‘Sopranos’ Prequel ‘Newark’ For Fall 2020

Newark is slated to be released in theaters on September 25th, 2020.

To better prepare for his role as young Tony Soprano in the upcoming Sopranos prequel movie Newark, Michael Gandolfini went back to the place where it all ended: the iconic booth at the Bloomfield, New Jersey, diner Holsten's that was the setting for The Sopranos' enigmatic final scene. So, we got that long to rewatch the entire run of the original series.

The film, co-written by "Sopranos" creator David Chase and Lawrence Konner, is reportedly set in the 1960s during Tony Soprano's childhood, circa the time of the Newark riots.

Beto Announces 2020 Run
His Senate bid generated a torrent of media attention and excited voters in a party desperate for fresh political faces. Beto O'Rourke announced he is running for president, making it official with an online video released Thursday morning.

Is that accurate? Are y'all hyped about this one? Although this character never appeared in the HBO series as he was killed before the story's timeline, his legacy and influence were clearly established as someone who helped the family become a legitimate power in the world of organized crime.

The rest of the cast includes Vera Farmiga, Ray Liotta, Jon Bernthal, Corey Stoll, Billy Magnussen and John Magaro, although there's still no word on what parts any of those actors will play.

Michael Gandolfini, the son of the late "Sopranos" star James Gandolfini, will portray a younger version of his father's famous character, Tony Soprano, in the film. It was especially lethal among African American and Italian American gangsters involved in the fighting - 26 people died and more than 700 people were injured during the riots.
