New Line is developing a movie prequel of 'The Sopranos' titled “The Many Saints of Newark,” by David Chase who created the hit HBO series. 

 

Some fan-favorite characters are expected to appear in the film which is set in the era of the Newark riots in the 60s, when African-Americans and Italians were adversaries. Rivalries turned deadly once gangsters from each side got involved. 

 

Considered one of the most groundbreaking television series of all time, the show ran for six seasons on HBO from 1999 to 2007. Its numerous accolades include 21 Emmy Awards and five Golden Globes.
