Looks Like It's Time To Talk About The SOPRANOS Finale Again

Christopher Moltisanti, who was played by Michael Imperioli in the series, was a protege of Tony Soprano, the New Jersey mob boss portrayed by James Gandolfini. As a result, the Tony we see in The Many Saints of Newark will be around 8-years-old.

The character was much more than some monosyllabic mob boss; when we first met Tony, he was suffering from panic attacks and a hard family life (often, problems of his own making), and the David Chase-led show managed to masterfully meld his mental processes with the unconventional life he was living as the head of the Soprano Crime Family in New Jersey. Alessandro Nivola, who will play Dickie Moltisanti (father of Chrissy) spoke to Variety at a Sopranos' anniversary event on Wednesday and shared some of the first details of the movie. But before we get to the pull-quote that's got everyone arching their eyebrows, I'd like to go on record with the following opinion: the ending of The Sopranos can not be "solved", should not be "solved", and was pretty much designed from the ground up to be open to interpretation.

Chase will produce The Many Saints of Newark and has written the script with The Sopranos writer Lawrence Konner.

A young Junior Soprano will also be a character in the film. Chase also added: "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".

"Yes, I think I had that death scene around two years before the end ..."

Edie Falco, Robert Iler and Jamie-Lynn Sigler attend the "The Sopranos" 20th Anniversary Panel Discussion at SVA Theater on January 09, 2019 in New York City.

"I was interested in Newark and life in Newark at that time", Chase told Deadline.

The Sopranos is one of the best shows of all time (no hyperbole), so I'm hopeful the film will turn out well.

"Yeah, I feel they're out there with shotguns, just waiting."

After all these years, maybe those fans of The Sopranos that absolutely hated the ending will finally get an element of closure.

"I don't know what we're supposed to take from it", Imperioli said.
