The lead, Tony Soprano, will forever be remembered as one of the most fascinating characters of all time, thanks in large part to the hard work of the great actor James Gandolfini, now deceased. Soon Tony will return to the big screen, albeit as a child, with the legacy that Gandolfini’s son, Michael Gandolfini in real life, will take on in the next prequel Many Saints of Newark. We now have our first look at the young actor in the role in the new trailer for HBO’s adaptation Max 2021.
This year, every movie from @WBPictures is coming out in theaters and airing exclusively on HBO Max.

Although the clip is very short, about 20 seconds of the trailer, we can already see how much Michael Gandolfini looks like his father, who sadly passed away in 2013. Not only does Gandolfini Jr. physically resemble his father, but he also seems to have the same intimidation, the same gruff behavior that made Tony Soprano so hilarious.
ACCEPTED : New images have been revealed from The Conjuring 3, Suicide Squad, Newark’s Many Saints and many others.
The Many Saints of Newark will precede David Chase’s hugely successful crime drama Soprano and offers a glimpse into the formative years of New Jersey gangster Tony Soprano. I was interested in Newark and I was living in Newark at the time, said creator of the series David Chase in a 2019 interview. I went there every Saturday night for dinner with my grandparents. But it was Tony’s childlike nature that interested me the most. I wanted to explore that possibility.
Chase also said at the time that the film would be about the tensions between blacks and whites at the time, capitalizing on the fact that the film was set during the 1967 Newark riots, which saw tensions rise between African Americans and Italian Americans in Newark, New Jersey.
Directed by Alan Taylor and written by David Chase and Lawrence Conner, Many Saints of Newark features a first-rate cast including Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead, The Punisher) and Vera Farmiga (The Departed, The Burials). Bernthal plays Giovanni Francis Johnny Boy Soprano, the father of crime boss Tony Soprano, who was originally represented by Joseph Siravo in six episodes of the HBO drama. Farmiga plays Giovanni’s wife and Tony’s mother, Livia Soprano, in the role originally played by Nancy Marchand.
The supporting cast includes Alessandro Nivola (A Most Violent Year) as Dickie Moltisanti, father of Christopher Moltisanti, a member of the DiMeo crime family, played by Michael Imperioli in The Sopranos, as well as Corey Stoll (Ant-Man), Billy Magnussen (No Time to Die), John Magaro (The Umbrella Academy), Leslie Odom Jr.). in The Umbrella Academy, Leslie Odom. (Murder on the Orient Express), Joey Diaz (Spider-Man 2) and Ray Liotta (Goodfellas).
Unfortunately, audiences will have to wait even longer before returning to the world of the Sopranos with Many Saints of Newark, after a recent delay postponed the film until fall 2020. The Many Saints of Newark is just one of many projects that have been postponed again due to the current world situation. The film is now coming out on the 24th. September 2021 in theaters, a full year later than the original release date.
Like the rest of Warner Bros. 2021, The Many Saints of Newark will be released simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max. It came to us from HBO Max.
