Sopranos creator David Chase ‘might’ be open to a Many Saints of Newark sequel … which sees James Gandolfini’s real life son as iconic mobster Tony

Sopranos prequel film The Many Saints of Newark explores the origin story of iconic mobster Tony Soprano.

Creator David Chase revealed in a new interview with Rolling Stone that he was reluctant to dive back into the New Jersey mob scene but ‘might’ now be open to the idea of a sequel to his upcoming film.

The prequel feature sees James Gandolfini’s real life son Michael take on the late actor’s starring role as the mafia boss 15 years after the HBO drama went off the air.

David Chase, 76, told the outlet that doing extra shooting for The Many Saints of Newark ‘brought the movie much more to my heart.’

The producer and showrunner revealed that some of the writers on the project have expressed an interest in furthering the story and that may be enough to get him on board.

‘If one of those guys was going to do it, I might do it with him,’ he said, adding with a caveat: ‘That’s really not high on my list of what to do. I’m not getting any younger. I want to make another movie, hopefully, and it would not be this one.’
