Now before you get too excited about the possibility read on.
Gandolfini claims that the only way he will make a “Sopranos” film is if David Chase, the “Soprano’s” creator goes broke. Sadly, the odds of that happening anywhere in the near future are pretty bleak considering that “The Sopranos” in its time was considered the most financially successful series in the history of cable television, and has been called by some the greatest television series of all time and is still running hot and heavy in syndication and has been broadcast on A&E in the United States and internationally.
In case you aren’t familiar with the “Sopranos” it was a huge HBO made for cable series that’s story lines revolved around the New Jersey-based Italian-American mobster Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) and the difficulties he faces as he tries to balance the conflicting requirements of his home life and the criminal organization he heads.
It also features Tony’s family members and Mafia associates in prominent roles and storylines, most notably his wife Carmela (Edie Falco) and cousin and protégé Christopher Moltisanti (Michael Imperioli). A central theme is his professional relationship with his psychiatrist, Dr. Jennifer Melfi (Lorraine Bracco).
The series premiered on the premium cable network HBO in the United States on January 10, 1999, and ended its original run of six seasons and 86 episodes on June 10, 2007.
Now we understand that this is not the best news for the millions of “Soprano” fans who would love just one more look into the mob world through Tony Soprano’s eyes, especially after the series finale left most of us die hard Sopranos fans hungry for more since we really didn’t get closure before the show just faded to black.
Several “Sopranos” fan based sites continue to hope to hear a confirmation about a full length “Sopranos” movie, now after James Gandolfini’s comments they will be wondering if when the decision is made if Tony Soprano will make out of that restaurant alive or not after all.
Let us know if you would love to see a “Sopranos” movie in the near future.
