Mr. Chase told website Showbiz 411, in an interview mainly about his big screen debut as director of a movie called Not Fade Away, that a THE SOPRANOS movie is not going to happen. Roger Friedman’s piece for the site states -
That is the bad news portion of this post. Fans of THE SOPRANOS will still have to live with the open ended “onion ring eating” finish to the series.
Mr. Chase did mention some potential good news for us and HBO. Here is how it was worded from the source –
“It would be with Tony’s father, and Uncle Junior, and Livia & Tony’s mother long before any of the other characters we know now.”
One other section from the piece sounded interesting. Again, quoting the site –
Well, I say bring any of these projects to light Mr. Chase. We will surely welcome you back to HBO. Right?
BONUS: Here is a SNL film from this past weekend entitled “The Soprano Diaries.” So, glad this is not the prequel Chase had in mind.
